Tuesday, April 21

Mostly sunny, breezy, cooler and less humid. Highs in the upper 60s-lower 70s. High pressure builds in behind last night's cold front and it will ensure we have a very pleasant day, with lots of sun and perhaps a couple of partly cloudy periods. The humidity will trend downward through the day as well, becoming a good deal lower than it was yesterday. Sunrise: 6:34 a.m., Sunset: 7:53 p.m. Wind: NW/W at 5-15 m.p.h. Tuesday night: Mostly clear and chilly. Lows in the mid to upper 40s. We should have a pleasantly cool night with no need for the air conditioning! Winds from the southwest at 5 mph.

Wednesday, April 22

Mostly sunny early, becoming partly cloudy, windy and warmer in the afternoon, with a slight chance for some showers ahead of our next cold front. Highs in the mid-upper 70s. A cold front approaching from the north may trigger some spotty showers that linger into tonight and early Thursday. This front will also bring some cooler and less humid air that you will feel for Thursday, Friday and the weekend! Sunrise: 6:33 a.m., Sunset: 7:54 p.m. Wind: SW at 10-20 m.p.h. Wednesday night: Mostly cloudy skies and perhaps a stray shower or two. Lows in the lower-mid 50s. Winds from the southwest to northwest at 5-15 mph.

Thursday, April 23

A morning shower in spots, otherwise early clouds should give way to partly or mostly sunny skies during the afternoon. Cooler and less humid again, with highs in the mid-upper 60s. Sunrise: 6:31 a.m., Sunset: 7:55 p.m. Wind: NW at 5-15 m.p.h. Thursday night: Clear skies and very cool

Friday, April 24

Partly cloudy, breezy and continued rather cool. Highs in the upper 60s-70. We'll watch for another reinforcing cold front to slip in from the north by Saturday morning. Sunrise: 6:30 a.m., Sunset: 7:56 p.m. Wind: W/NW at 5-15 m.p.h. Friday night: Mostly cloudy, chance of rain late

Saturday, April 25

Cloudy skies with rain likely. Highs in the upper 50s-mid 60s. We have the potential to have a washout today along with it being a very chilly day. If we do tend to have an overcast from the start of the day with rain and it stays with us all day, it is quite possible temperatures may not budge out of the 50s. Today is the day to watch for some nasty, dreary weather! Sunrise: 6:29 a.m., Sunset: 7:57 p.m. Wind: E at 5-10 m.p.h. Saturday night: Partly cloudy, cool

Sunday, April 26

Partly cloudy and not quite as cool. Highs staying in the 60s. Sunrise: 6:28 a.m., Sunset: 7:58 p.m. Wind: NW at 5-10 m.p.h. Sunday night: Mostly clear
