The temperatures will remain above average for much of the state over the next couple of days, especially on Monday. Most areas over the next two days will be in the 50s and 60s, but then parts of the state could see a few 70s and this could be another day of record breaking high temperatures. There could be a limiting factor of cloud cover that prevents some areas to see higher temperatures than others. Winds will also be picking back up for Monday, along with a quick moving clipper system that will potentially bring in a few light rain showers. The winds will last through much of the week. Temperatures will change once it gets to be closer to the end of the week because they will be on a gradual decrease and a bit closer to average. The extended outlook looks to have below average temperatures for the second week of December, so be sure to enjoy the warmer temperatures now. An average high temperature for this time of year is in the mid 30s and lows in the teens. We are seeing temperatures well above the average.
Tonight, lows in the mid to upper 20s with winds light and south. Expect a mostly clear sky.
Sunday, highs mainly in the upper 40s and 50s in the northern region and 60s in the south. Morning clouds are likely then a clearing though the day. Winds south and light.
Sunday night, a partly cloudy sky, with more clouds north. Winds southeast and light with lows on either side of 30 degrees.
Monday, cooler in the north with highs in the 50s, and 60s with a few lower 70s possible south. Skies cloudy and winds south then shifting west at 5-15 mph.
Monday night, a west wind at 5-15 mph and clear skies. Lows in the mid to upper 20s.
