A weak cold front moving through early Saturday morning won't cool us down but it will shift our winds to the north for Saturday and dry out our air slightly. Saturday will be mostly sunny and warm with a high near 80 and north winds shifting to the east up to 12 mph.

Sunday still looks warm with afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s despite the mostly cloudy skies. A few light showers are possible Sunday but many areas will be missed. Much cooler air moves in Sunday night as northerly winds increase to 15-25 mph, gusting to 30 mph. Lows will dip to near 40 by Monday morning.

You might see a shooting star this weekend as the Geminid meteor shower is in progress. It peaks Sunday night with anywhere from 60 to 120 possible per hour. We'll have a new moon so moonlight won't interfere and we'll also have clearing skies Sunday night. However, it will be chilly with a cold northerly wind and temperatures falling into the 40s so you'll need a jacket.

The work week will start off dry and chilly with afternoon temperatures in the 50s Monday and down into the lower 40s Monday night. Tuesday will be milder, reaching near 70 but another cold front will bring temperatures back down into the lower 60s for highs Wednesday. Nights will stay chilly next week, in the lower 40s.
