A windy Friday with steady breezes from 16 to 23 mph and occasional gusts up to 30 mph should subside by late afternoon, bringing a weekend with lots of sunshine and temperatures a degree or two below normal.
“As expected, a cold front came through Thursday evening and the winds will die off this afternoon. It was a pretty quick shot,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Clay Morgan. “It will be a gradual process with less and less wind by noon and then less by 4 p.m.”
With sunny skies, Friday’s projected high is 54, compared to a normal of 57. The overnight low will dip to 34, about 3 degrees below normal.
The forecast for Saturday and Sunday is pretty much identical with calm winds.
Temperatures will rise just a few degrees early next week with a forecast that is dry and sunny.
“There is no chance for precipitation through Tuesday and perhaps beyond,” Morgan said.
