Tonight: Mainly clear.

High: 65 Wind: WNW 10-15
Sunday night: Cool, mainly clear.
After a warm and BEAUTIFUL start to the weekend, temperatures won't quite hit that 70+ degree mark anytime soon.
Elevated fire weather conditions will be a threat for this weekend with the combination of gusty winds, warm temperatures, and little humidity.
It will be mostly clear going into tonight with temperatures ranging in the upper 30s to mid 40s across the region. Skies will remain clear for tomorrow as well but we won't be as warm as Saturday, with highs topping off in the mid 60s. Breezy WNW winds will stick with us for Sunday before dying down going into the start of the work week. Lows Sunday night will be chilly, at or near freezing. If you're looking to plant any flowers- it may be tempting, but wait about a week and a half or so before doing so.
Cooler weather will carry over this week as temperatures tumble into the low 50s and even upper 40s as highs. Rain showers will develop Monday overnight into Tuesday and give way to cooler temps. A few chances for showers will be possible closing out the workweek.
Enjoy this SUNNY weekend! -Meteorologist Liz Szewczyk, May 2, 2020 3:40 PM
