Monday, April 27

Partly cloudy to mostly sunny and warmer, but less humid. Highs in the upper 60s-70. High pressure settles in for the next two days which should tend to keep our weather bright, but we do stay on the cool side of normal for this time of year. Sunrise: 6:27 a.m., Sunset: 7:58 p.m. Wind: NW at 5-15 m.p.h. Monday night: Clear and quite cool as a dry high pressure ridge remains in control. Lows in the low to mid 40s. Winds from the northwest at 10 mph.

Tuesday, April 28

Mostly sunny and a little cooler, with clear skies to start the day and a few fair weather clouds later in the afternoon. Highs again in the upper 60s-70. Should be another fine day with temperatures similar to those on Monday. Sunrise: 6:25 a.m., Sunset: 7:59 p.m. Wind: N/NW at 5-10 m.p.h. Tuesday night: Clouds increase, but it will still be another cool night with lows in the upper 40s.

Wednesday, April 29

Mostly cloudy skies with a good chance of rain developing. It appears that a storm system will be forming south of us and moving into position off our coast, and could throw some rain in our direction.

Friday, May 1

Mostly sunny to partly cloudy and warmer. Highs in the lower 70s. We should start to see the beginning of a warming pattern today that will likely carry us into the coming weekend and into next week.
