High pressure controls our weather through Friday morning. By Friday afternoon, a cold front moving in from the west will bring rain and maybe some thunder Friday afternoon, overnight, and into Saturday morning. A line of thunderstorms could move through Saturday morning before the rain ends. Temperatures are close to average today and tomorrow.
The cold front will move through Saturday afternoon and you will think a train is coming down the tracks all day as the winds howl. Winds will increase Friday night from the west and peak Saturday with gusts near 55 mph. High pressure builds in Sunday and the winds relax while temperatures cool.
Winds turn more to the southeast Monday and Tuesday as high pressure slips offshore. Skies will be sunny and temperatures will be above average. The next cold front probably will not make it through until late next week so we should be dry until Thursday.
