We stay warm through Saturday morning with Saturday morning temperatures on Saturday into the 40s.

Looking ahead, the weather pattern calms down a little heading into next week with a more zonal pattern expected. Highs look fairly consistent throughout the workweek.

I’m forecasting highs in the mid-40s all work week long at this time.
