A cold front will bring windy conditions to the area on Wednesday and cooler temperatures on Thursday.  Sustained winds up to 20 mph will be possible Wednesday afternoon and wind gusts could register 30 mph.  Temperatures behind the front will fall from the middle 70s on Wednesday to the upper 60s on Thursday.  Additionally, with the dry air in place, morning temperatures on Thursday will be around 40 degrees.  The combination of winds and increasing clouds will keep temperatures away from frost/freeze territory.  The ridge of high pressure that we started the week with will again strengthen going into Memorial Day weekend.  Each day following Thursday will be a few degrees warmer than the one before it.  Highs will average the lower 80s Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

WEDNESDAY: A mix of sun and clouds as a cold front passes through. Peak temps will be mid-day in the mid to upper 70s, then falling.

THURSDAY: Cooler and dry with a few clouds in the late afternoon. High Temperature in the upper 60s

FRIDAY: Staying dry and warm. High Temperature in the lower 70s

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: Clouds will be around this weekend but not much will get in the way of temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s. Highs will be nearly 10 degrees above average starting next week.
