After an unseasonably cool start to the weekend Saturday, temperatures are expected to pick up today and extend into the upper 70s.
At the peak of the afternoon Saturday, the high temperature barely climbed into the 60s. National Weather Service Meterolgist Aaron Reynolds said the cooler-than-normal temperatures were the result of a cold front that brought quite a bit of chilly air.
“We also had a lot of cloud cover that developed, which kept the temperatures supressed,” Reynolds said.
Today’s high is expected to reach 77 degrees, with sunny skies and a calm wind from the northeast. Tonight, it will be mostly clear, with a low of about 58 degrees and a a light wind out of the east.
