Sunshine will be limited today but the gusty breezes will be abundant. Strong southwesterly winds will help push afternoon temperatures to the 70 degree mark across the region. A cold front will approach, then cross the area overnight bringing scattered showers and slowly falling temperatures. The sunshine will return tomorrow as will the gusty breezes. But this time it will be a northwesterly wind and that will put a lid on high temperatures. They are expected to reach only the middle to upper 50s.

Sunshine is in the forecast for the weekend. Saturday's high will be in the lower 50s and then climb into the lower 60s on Sunday. And remember to turn clocks ahead one hour Saturday night as we " Spring Forward" to Daylight Saving Time.
