    A deep area of low pressure will meander well offshore to our south and east today. This will allow the influence of high pressure to take over for the day and deliver dry weather with some intervals of sunshine. It will be partly cloudy and cold tonight with a light but steady north to northwest breeze. An upper level trough to our west will begin to syphon some of the moisture from the offshore storm back into our region especially late tomorrow and tomorrow night. In addition to more cloud cover and the threat of some rain showers tomorrow afternoon and evening, this will also increase the wind field of the offshore storm resulting in a period of breezy to gusty northwest winds. Rain showers will continue through tomorrow night then wind down Friday morning. A dry mild weekend will follow as high pressure briefly builds across. Highs will rise into the 60s early next week as warmer air surges ahead of a weakening cold front. Weak low pressure thereafter will bring the next opportunity for wet weather.
