Warm, dry weather continues

Simon Smith

Warmer conditions will be returning to our area today and, unfortunately, the afternoon Zephyr from the southwest will be returning as well, although not too strong this afternoon.

Under mostly sunny skies, except for the smoke and a few clouds this afternoon, highs will warm back up into the upper 70s to lower 80s. Northeast winds around 10 mph this morning will shift around to the southwest in the 10 to 15 mph range, with some gusts to 20 mph possible by mid to late afternoon.

Tonight, the winds should die out quickly, and lows will fall into the mid 30s to mid 40s. Winds will be on the increase once again on Wednesday through the end of the week, as our dry pattern continues. There is no precipitation in sight at this point.
