Severe threat has ended across the area, but isolated shower chances will linger into midday. Breezy afternoon with winds transitioning out of the SW 5-15 mph with gusts 25 mph. Highs will reach the low 70s. Clouds fill in Friday with another approaching cold front. This will be generally dry, but could see a quick dusting of snow for the mountains overnight into early Saturday. Temps will reach the low 60s Saturday and Sunday with overnight lows falling near freezing Sunday morning. It will at the very least be sunny, but cold with high pressure building across the region. Temps will rebound into the low 70s early next week. Next round of storms looks likely to arrive mid to late next week..
