As we get into the afternoon, we will see wind gusts start to decrease and there is a chance that the advisories could be called off.

Friday’s high is set at 64 degrees but we have already reached that high, and temperatures will drop throughout the day, going as low as 50 degrees tonight.

The weekend will bring about warmer temperatures, with Saturday’s high forecasted at 68 degrees. We could see some drizzle, but then on Sunday, the high temperature will be 66 with rain showers.
