Sunny weekend weather, Rain next week
A warm and sunny weekend is ahead!
Today and Tonight: It will be warmer with temperatures in the upper 70s this afternoon. A touch more humidity today and some coastal showers will be possible. Overnight, the humidity will be more noticeable as temperatures only cool to the mid-50s. Some fog will be possible especially in areas near bodies of water.
Up next: Even with a little more humidity, it will still be a clear and comfortable weekend. Temperatures will be near 80 in the afternoon and near 60 overnight. On Monday, a weak front will move through and will knock back temperatures a few degrees. It will not be strong enough to keep the rain away. Showers and storms will be in the area on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then, another cold front will move through with enough power to move out all the rain and drop temperatures back to normal for November.
