Just after 8:00 a.m., temperatures will warm up with winds picking up, as well.

By the afternoon, winds will be well into the teens and temperatures will likely top out near 60 degrees.

Friday will be just as warm as today with highs back in the low 60s.

As the weekend approaches, a cold front will move in from the northwest. It will bring a low rain chance to the area with places along and south of I-70 having the best chance for rain. Temperatures will snap back to the mid-50s for highs with morning lows remaining in the 50s.
