It’s been another mild day, but the next round of rain and strong wind is not far behind.
Today, a warm front has been lifting across the area. This has been ushering in a warmer southerly breeze and helping to boost temperatures into the 70s, which is record range to the south.
Overnight, wind gusts out of the southwest will pick up to around 40 mph and help to keep temperatures in the mid 50s, which is about 15 degrees warmer than normal afternoon and about 30 degrees warmer than normal lows for this time of year.
Tomorrow, will be warm and breezy. Wind gusts will stay out of the southwest at 15-25 mph with gusts reaching around 40 mph in the afternoon.
