Skies will remain mostly cloudy for the afternoon hours with temperatures reaching the mid 50s. Winds will become west-southwest but remain around 6-12 mph.

The rest of the week looks dry until late Friday. Temperatures will stay well above average with highs in the 60s Thursday and Friday. Much colder air swings in for the weekend with highs back in the low 40s. Some rain and snow is expected Saturday,  but little or no accumulation of snow is expected.
