The cooler weather makes an apperance as the rain clears Wednesday. Our afternoon highs will struggle to climb out of the middle 60s through the end of the week. While the frost threat is low, cooler mornings will likely mean you’ll need a light jacket early in the day. Temperatures are set to fall into the middle 40s each morning through Friday.

Rain chances are slim the remainder of the week and the temperatures will eventually turn warmer. Expect afternoon highs to return to the lower 70s by the end of the weekend.
