Drier weather and moderating temperatures will return today as high pressure attempts to build into the region, but it will remain breezy with a stiff pressure gradient still in place. A Red Flag Warning has been issued by the National Weather Service to highlight the increased fire threat this afternoon from gusty winds and low relative humidity values. Winds will finally start to relax into tonight with another chilly night expected as temperatures drop below freezing.

Temperatures will moderate on Friday, but clouds will be on the increase as an upper level system and associated front approaches with a chance of rain showers Friday night, lingering into the beginning of the weekend as an upper level low remains nearby. High pressure will then build back into the region for Sunday and Monday.
