Winds will keep blowing through this evening and overnight as an area of low pressure moves overhead. A few showers can't be ruled out early this evening as well but most will stay dry and any rain totals will be light. Tonight a cold front will switch our winds to the northwest and keep them strong at 15-25 mph. Cooler air will move in as well with temperatures falling to the mid 40s by sunrise on Saturday. Winds will stay out of the northwest on Saturday and stay breezy at 10-15 mph. We'll stay dry on Saturday with clear skies and highs near 70. Sunday another storm system will move through but it looks like the heavier storms will spark east where the better moisture is. We'll continue to watch the conditions for any changes. Highs will rise into the 80s on Sunday and the winds return to the south at 15-25 mph. Next week is looking active with thunderstorms possible on multiple days.
