Enjoy the feel of late summer air for the next 24 hours. Skies will clear this evening, leading to clear skies overnight. A very gentle breeze is expected, as area temperatures fall into the mid-50s by morning. Thursday promises to be another unseasonably warm day under mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will return to near 80 degrees by the mid-afternoon hours.

A secondary cold front passes Thursday night, sending temperatures tumbling on Friday. Area highs will struggle to reach 60 degrees and a few areas will fall short of that mark. By Saturday morning, temperatures will drop into the upper 30s. That is territory we have not visited since last April and it will give us a cold reminder that autumn is here. The remainder of the weekend looks good, with highs on Sunday bouncing back into the lower 70s.
