Today’s sunny skies are forecast to last through the weekend and into next week, extending the recent warm weather into the last days of summer.
By this afternoon, temperatures in The City are expected to hover in the mid- to upper 70s and wind speeds of about 10 to 20 mph are forecast, according to Dan Gudgel of the National Weather Service.
Afternoon highs Saturday will likely be a little lower, with the mercury dipping to the low 70s, he said. On Sunday, temperatures are expected to pop back up to the low 80s. Winds between 5 and 10 mph are forecast, Gudgel said.
“It’s going to start to get warm on Sunday,” he said. “This weather is seasonable. There are mild day temperatures and at night, it’s not excessively cold.”
