THE COMING WEEK: Mainly clear tonight with lows in the 20’s and 30’s as winds improve. Much calmer for Sunday with dry skies and highs in the 60’s. Winds kick up again on Monday with temperatures warming into the 70’s, which should make it the warmest day of the week. Highs mainly in the upper 50’s and 60’s for the rest of the week. Winds will be strong again on Tuesday, but they’ll improve for Wednesday and Thursday.
