A few clouds drifted across the eastern parts of the ABC12 viewing area Friday afternoon. Northerly winds held temperatures back a little bit as highs struggled to get near the 40-degree mark. Our "normal" high temperature is now 47-degrees.
Our stretch of relatively quiet weather will be continuing on through the weekend. We should see quite a bit of sunshine, but our temperatures will continue to run at below-average levels. It will be a brisk northeasterly wind Saturday, and an easterly one Sunday that will do the damage. Wind speeds may approach 20mph Saturday, and 15mph Sunday.
Some decent warming is on tap for next week. Bright sunshine will combine with southeasterly winds to allow highs to approach the 50-degree mark. Strong winds from the south-southwest should push readings into the 50s for Tuesday. As the warmer air gets drawn into the area, it will be accompanied by more cloud cover and some rain for the midweek period. - JR
