Gusty winds

  • Winds are staying high Thursday and Friday. A wind advisory is in effect through 8 p.m. Thursday.

Cool this weekend

  • Highs will be close to 50 degrees both days, which is almost 10 degrees below where we should be this time of the year.

Rain/snow chances next week

  • Long-range models still aren’t in a great consensus on the track of next week’s storms, and as a result, there’s still some uncertainty on exactly how things will shake out.
  • It looks like most of what falls will be rain Monday and Tuesday, but there could be a few snowflakes mixing in, at times, as well.
  • Another shot for rain comes late Wednesday into Thursday.

Normal high at 60 degrees

  • On Thursday, the sun rose at 6:59 a.m., marking the first pre-7 a.m. sunrise in a long while.
  • The sun will continue to rise earlier and earlier through mid-June.
