Friday will wrap up the work week with warm and dry conditions that will be replaced with cooler temperatures and the potential for rain over the weekend.

The high temperature Friday will be in the upper 70s before falling to the low 40s overnight. Northwest winds in the 10 to 15 mile per hour range will shift to the east later in the day.

Saturday leads off a cooling trend for daytime highs. Expect lower 60s - below seasonal averages - through the weekend into the early part of the coming week, with Tuesday potentially reaching only the upper 50s.

Overnight temperatures will remain near or slightly above seasonal averages with low to mid-40s expected.

Winds pick up Sunday out of the south in the 15 to 20 mph ranges, with gusts to 30 mph possible. Wind will continue overnight and into Monday.

The best chance of showers and thunderstorms occurs Sunday afternoon into the evening, and again Monday afternoon and evening. Although less likely, rain and storms are possible throughout the entire period starting Saturday night and continuing through Tuesday night.

A warm-up starts Wednesday and Thursday, with high temperatures rising to mid-60s and 70s.
