WEDNESDAY: With a mostly sunny sky and high clouds, temperatures should reach into the 70s by afternoon – finally feeling like spring!

WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Scattered clouds and pleasant with lows dropping into the middle 40s.

THURSDAY: Ahead of increasing clouds, temperatures should still sneak into the 70s by afternoon. A few showers are possible in the evening hours, but higher rain chances will hold off until Friday.
