Meteorologist Mark Larson says Thursday's cooler temps are in our weather rear view mirror and we're expecting a slow but steady warming trend to take us through our weekend.
Thursday's surge of cool, Canadian air, will push eastward Friday allowing fresh southerly winds to boost our afternoon highs back into the 70s under a mostly sunny sky.
Look for even warmer temperatures this weekend when highs climb back into the upper 70s and lower 80s along with gusty southerly winds for some.
Our next chance for rain/storms should arrive Tuesday.
