    It’s going to feel more like April this weekend, complete with the possibility of showers tomorrow afternoon.

    A warm front passed through the area overnight, and drier conditions will prevail today. Mild air will flow up from the southwest, sending temperatures up to 15 degrees above normal, according to the National Weather Service. 

    High temperatures will reach the upper 50s to lower 60s under mostly sunny skies. Winds will be in the 10 to 15 miles per hour range out of the southwest, gusting up to 25 miles per hour.

    A weak cold front will pass through the region tonight, but the only consequence will be some clouds. Low temperatures will drop into the 40s. Winds will shift to the west. 

    Tomorrow will begin with fair weather, but shower chances increase during the afternoon hours as a weak area of low pressure passes through the area. High temperatures will remain mild and similar to today.
