Thursday was another very dreary day with lingering showers and chilly temperatures across the entire ABC12 viewing area. The storm system responsible is moving eastward out of the region, so we should see some improvements in our overall weather setting as we close out the week.
A small high pressure, or fair-weather, cell will dominate conditions Friday. It won't be strong enough to clear our skies entirely, but we will see a little bit of sunshine. With some sun, we will also have a breeze blowing in from the southwest. This combination will push readings back to "normal" levels for this time of the year.
Southwesterly breezes will hold Friday night through Saturday afternoon, so our temperatures will continue to climb. Highs Saturday should be able to push into the 60s ahead of a cool front. The front will give us a chance of some rain by Saturday night, and drop our temps back into the 50s for Sunday.
And a quick look ahead shows that Halloween (Monday) is still looking pretty good. Highs will sneak up to around 60 with dry conditions expected for trick-or-treat time. - JR
