The weekend is here, and it brought warm weather!

The past two days have been nice and warm, and that trend carries us into the weekend. Highs today will reach the mid to upper 60s with plenty of sunshine! Winds will be strong out of the southwest, increasing fire danger across the state.

A weak front moves through this afternoon and evening, but won't do much to our temperatures. We will have a north wind behind the front, but that's about it. Lows tonight will drop back into the 30s, and highs tomorrow will return to the 60s.

A few weak cold fronts dot the 9-Day forecast, but the only one that looks to pack any punch won't arrive until next weekend. Monday's will come through quickly. Wednesday and Thursday's front will bring slightly cooler temperatures and a chance of showers.

Next weekend's front will bring in more cold air and a better opportunity for rain. We certainly need it! Until then, enjoy the warmer weather!
