Warm, breezy, dry and sunny is how I would describe today. We’ll see mid 70s with SW winds 10-20 MPH. Fire danger will be elevated due to the breezy winds and dry conditions. Tonight we’ll see plenty of clear skies and temperatures that will drop into the mid 40s.
Even warmer weather is in the forecast for Friday. In fact, near-record highs are possible. High temperatures will be in the upper 70s to near 80. Enjoy it! We’ll see mostly sunny skies again with dry conditions but not as breezy as today.
