Time to open up the windows and get some fresh air in the house. Although you may want to wait until at least midday.
We had a chilly start to the day with lots of 30s and a few 40s on the map. However, we’ll warm up quite a bit this afternoon. High temps will be in the mid-upper 60s.
It will probably be cooler near the shore (50s) as water temperatures are only in the low 40s. (Which is normal for this time of year).
We have high pressure in the region today, and winds will be light and out of the west.
So enjoy the nice weather today. If you can’t get out today, don’t worry. We’ll have mild/warm temperatures all week.The average high temperature for this time of year is 49 degrees. We’ll be above that through Friday.
Tomorrow, a cool front will move into the region. So temps will drop to the upper 50s to low 60s, but that’s still well above that average. We’ll be partly cloudy with a stray shower or two possible in the region.
The front will lift north on Thursday, and high temps will spike. We’ll aim for the mid 70s with partly sunny skies. The record high temps are in the mid 70s that day. So we’ll likely tie or break the record. The wind will have to be stronger than 10mph out of the south or southwest.
Otherwise there is a high potential for a seabreeze to form which could put a damper on the warmth for some. We’ll see.
On Friday, high temps will probably reach the low 70s before cooling down in the afternoon. A cold front looks to move through during the morning, and it will probably drop temperatures later in the day. We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds with a few scattered showers behind the front. Then, temperatures will keep falling. Highs will only be in the 40s on Saturday. Youch! Stay tuned for updates as the timing of some of these features may change.
