A passing cold front has brought a dramatic drop in temperature on Thursday with a refreshing breeze. That breeze will settle down later this evening and an unseasonably cool night is likely with a low in the valley between 48°-53°.

Friday is setting up to be a spectacular day with bright sunshine and almost no wind at all. With a cool morning and a warm afternoon near 84° it will be perfect for most outdoor activities!

The heat will continue to rebuild through Saturday, reaching the mid 90s. Saturday will be the hottest day of the weekend, if you have any outdoor activities planned remember to stay hydrated and to take shade breaks when possible.

The heat doesn't return for long as a cold front moves through for Sunday kicking off another somewhat breezy day so if you are looking to do something on the water, Saturday looks like the best day!

A sneak peek into the long holiday weekend indicates temperatures steadily climbing from the low 90s on Thursday, July 4th to 100° by Saturday and Sunday! This means temperatures in the central mountains around 5000ft will rise to the mid-80s!
