Gusty winds return, sunshine sticks around

The sky will stay fairly clear tonight as winds turn light and variable for tonight. That combination will help temperatures fall right back down into the 40s overnight.

Light winds will still be the case as you head out the door to start off the brand new work and school week on Monday. However, those winds will pick up quite a bit of momentum as the day progresses. We’re tracking sustained north and northwesterly winds between 15 and 25 mph, with gusts exceeding 30 mph at times. Otherwise, you can expect more sunshine and temperatures in the 60s and low 70s for Monday.

Those strong winds and sunshine will carry over into Tuesday, but it will be cooler with highs in the upper 50s and 60s. But for both Monday and Tuesday, try to avoid any outdoor burning. Those high winds will go along with fairly dry air in place, so any fires could quickly spread.

Winds start to relax by midweek, and a little bit more moisture returns to the air, so the threat of fire weather will greatly diminish. However, sunshine will continue to be the dominating theme, helping temperatures to top out near 70 degrees once again for midweek.

Temperatures take a tumble starting on Friday as our next cold front slides in. The moisture with that front looks to be pretty limited, so we’re not tracking much of a precipitation chance as of right now. Otherwise, you can expect morning lows in the 30s and daytime highs only in the 50s for Friday and next weekend.
