Afternoon highs will reach about 39 degrees with a light breeze from the southwest. Temperatures will remain mild in the evening, around 31 degrees.
Sunday will be even warmer, temperatures will rise to the lower or middle 40s. By late Monday, the wind direction will shift out of the northeast which will begin a cooling trend. Highs will get to the middle or upper 30s Monday afternoon. On Tuesday, high temperatures will be in the middle 30s. Highs will reach only the upper 20s on Wednesday.
The weekend will be warm and dry. Highs will get close to the 40 degree mark Saturday, and into the 40s Sunday afternoon. Monday is now looking dry with highs in the upper 30s. A storm system will develop this weekend over the southwestern states, and it will move toward the lower Great Lakes.
