    The lack of clouds and the extremely dry air will help the temperatures fall quickly after sunset Wednesday. If you have plans to head outdoors for the evening, take your jacket with you.

     

    Highs on Thursday will be in the low 70s. That’s average for this time of the year, but they will be rebounding into the 80s this weekend in response to the winds shifting from the east to southeast.
