Tomorrow will be even warmer as the NWS predicts the high temperature will be in the low-60s. Besides the sunny conditions, it will also be breezy, with a southwest wind between 13 and 21 mph. Scattered showers are possible tomorrow night, and a low temperature in the mid-40s.
Friday should be mostly sunny, with a high temperature in the low-50s. It will be breezy again, with a northwest wind 9 to 12 mph, increasing to between 17 and 20 mph. Nighttime will be mostly clear, with a low around temperature around 30 degrees.
