Records obliterated Thursday; warmth not done yet

Record highs were smashed on Thursday with everyone soaring into the 60s courtesy of southerly wind and sunshine. A cold front will move through tonight, bringing a few sprinkles and colder air on Friday.

We warm back up into the low 50s on Saturday and low 60s by Sunday as a strong storm system moves across the country. It will turn breezy by Saturday night and rain is likely from 8 p.m. Saturday thru Monday morning.

Thunder cannot be ruled out as ample moisture and even some very minor instability is drawn into the region. Substantially colder air arrives by Monday with a few snow showers possible late in the day and again on Tuesday.

It stays colder through New Year's Day and beyond as it looks now.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy; sprinkles possible. Low of 36.

Friday: AM clouds; PM sunshine. High of 43.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy; rain by evening. High of 51.

Sunday: Rain likely; breezy. High of 62.
