Our winds have taken a westerly turn, that's a warming wind. Highs this afternoon will continue a slow and steady climb into the low 80s. Meanwhile, skies will mostly sunny with just a small chance at an isolated shower or two. I wouldn't cancel plans over this, just know you may have to dodge a couple rain drops, but not very many. The warm up continues tomorrow as a ridge of high pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere builds overhead from the west. This ridge drives temperatures even higher into the upper 80s Thursday and Friday while keeping your rain chance very small. The muggy meter will also be inching higher during that time; lows will be near 60°. Our next front will approach by Friday night giving us a high chance at showers and thunderstorms for much of Mother's Day weekend. If you don't already have a "plan B" in place for outdoor plans, now is a good time to ask yourself "what am I going to do if it rains?". This front is moving much faster than the last couple we've had come through; we'll be dry and comfortable in the low 80s by Monday.

Be safe and have a great Wednesday!
