After two very warm early December days, today is still unseasonably mild but colder air is on the way. But those falling temperatures will be only temporary. Scattered showers accompanied the cold front but they were relatively few in number. The colder air is lagging a bit behind the front, so as skies clear later this morning and the gusty winds blow, temperatures will be slow to fall. But under clear skies tonight, temperaatures will fall into the 20s and 30s. Tomorrow will be sunny and chilly with high temperatures in the middle 40s. More clouds will return on Friday with temperatures around 50 degrees.

The weekend looks mild but unsettled. Another frontal system will be to blame. Right now, we are calling for partly cloudy skies on Saturday with highs in the lower 60s. Sunday may become mostly cloudy with a few showers later in the day. Temperatures will remain well above average.
