Sunny and very warm today.

Clear skies and a little bit of wind overnight have set the stage for a very warm day.  Overnight lows were in the upper 40s to low 50s which presets the atmosphere to warm very rapidly come the afternoon.  Expect high temperatures to reach into the low 80s for many areas.  The winds will die off in the morning, but expect a gust or two to about 20mph, especially in the north valley.  Sunday will be much the same temperature wise.  The difference will be the calm winds overnight which will allow for much lower temperatures tonight creating a much more difficult return to 80°.  The sunshine generally sticks around through the end of next week.

The biggest change in the coming few days looks to be the winds.  Monday and Tuesday will have some breezy north winds which initial forecasts say could top 30mph.  Wind advisories are a possibility in the next couple days as next week begins.
