Did last night's cold front wake anybody else up? After a mighty two-hundredths of an inch of rain earlier in the evening, the cold front passed through town a little before 3 a.m., with a westerly breeze bringing in much drier air. This afternoon's high should be in the upper 60s. The strong gusts, low humidity and almost total lack of rainfall recently means conditions are ripe for rapid fire growth. The low humidity also means a cool night. Look for a low tomorrow in the lower 50s in the city and cooler in surrounding areas.
While Saturday will start out dry, the approach of another cold front will bring clouds in the afternoon and a slight chance of light rain tomorrow night. Don't hold your breath on the latter. The warm October weather—so far we're on pace to set a new record—will continue with a high in the upper 60s.
Behind the cold front Sunday is expected to be sunny and slightly cooler with a high in the lower 60s. As high pressure sits around the temperature should drift back to the mid 60s on Monday and upper 60s on Tuesday. Say goodbye to the record warmth after another cold front passes late Tuesday or Wednesday. High temperatures for the latter half of next week look to be below 60 and lows might start dipping into the 30s by next Friday.
