Skies should be sunny this afternoon. Temperatures should warm quickly with highs topping out in the lower 60s. Winds will be out of the northeast around 5-10 mph.
A strong cold front heads into the Valley on Saturday. We should see a fair amount of sun through the morning hours, but clouds increase for Saturday afternoon. Winds will be out of the southwest, and that should help keep highs in the low/mid 60s for one more afternoon.
A few afternoon rain showers are possible as the front passes. The rest of the weekend brings jacket weather. As the wind shifts around to the north behind the front, temperatures will drop rapidly…we could be into the 30s by 9 p.m. Lows should drop into the mid 20s to begin Sunday.
Despite mostly sunny skies Sunday afternoon, highs will stay in the low-to-mid 40s. High pressure moves overhead into Monday. That should lead to another chilly night with mid 20s expected on Monday morning. Skies will be sunny for the afternoon, and highs should get back into the 50s. Temperatures get progressively warmer each day as we head towards Thanksgiving. Dry weather should continue.
