The forecast through Friday calls for sunny, mild days and clear cool nights. A few high clouds can be expected from time to time, but no rain is expected through Sunday. A cold front will bring cooler weather to the region by this weekend.
WEDNESDAY - THANKSGIVING DAY - BLACK FRIDAY:
Mostly sunny skies can be expected each afternoon with high temperatures in the lower 70s. Mornings will start in the 40s. As humidity levels increase ahead of a cold front on Friday, morning temperatures will creep closer to 50 by Friday morning.
A cold front will move through on Friday afternoon, bringing a reinforcing shot of cooler and drier air. Temperatures will be about 10° cooler this weekend with highs in the upper 50s well inland to the lower and mid 60s from I-10 southward to the beaches. Low temperatures will drop into the mid 40s Saturday morning, but the coolest morning will be Sunday morning, when widespread 30s are expected. Some inland areas near Hwy 84 and typically colder spots farther south could see a light freeze as temperatures fall into the lower 30s. Sunday afternoon will be a transition period, as the cold air rapidly moves away and warmer weather moves back in. Clouds will increase late Sunday, but plenty of sunshine is expected this weekend.
MONDAY - TUESDAY (NEXT WEEK):
It will rapidly become cloudy through the day Monday as moisture increases across the region ahead of the next storm system. Rain will begin breaking out to our west, then move into the region by Monday night. Off and on showers are expected through Tuesday afternoon, followed by another round of cooler weather by mid-week. Temperatures Monday will be warmer than what we'll see over the weekend, but clouds will be thick, especially Tuesday, so don't expect much sunshine.
