Skies were sunny and bright for the entire week. Last Wednesday was cool, but the weather warmed up on Thursday and Friday with highs in the sixties and only light breezes. On Saturday, the temperature got up to 77°F and was as pretty a day as you could ask for this time of year.
A cold front blew in on Saturday night and the New Year came in with temperatures in the low thirties with brisk breezes. It has been relatively cool since then, warming slightly to yesterday afternoon’s low sixties.
The forecast is for continued sunny skies with highs in the fifties and sixties and lows in the thirties.
