Sunny skies are quickly returning this afternoon with the passing of the cold front. That will allow for winds to shift out of the north and west this afternoon and cooler air to begin funneling in. Tonight will be chilly, looking at low's around 40 degrees.
Heading into Thursday, it'll remain cool. High's are expected to be in the low 60's with mostly sunny skies overhead. Luckily, a high pressure system will slowly work in by Thursday afternoon, allowing for warmer temperatures to settle by Friday and into the weekend.
With the cold front moving out, drier air is settling in allowing for those clear skies and crisp temperatures. This will continue through the early weekend before our next rain maker arrives early next week bringing another round of showers and cooler temperatures. Model guidance below shows a few of those light showers in the higher elevations later this afternoon, but those will clear out by the evening hours.
To wrap up your Wednesday forecast, expect skies to continue clearing this afternoon and temperatures to stay in the low 60's to upper 50's. This will lead to a chilly overnight and another cool start Thursday before we slowly start warming back up into the 70's. Don't forget to check out our video updates below and have a good day!
