The blocking pattern responsible for this week’s gusty winds is starting to break down.

High pressure begins to emerge from the west heading into the weekend, driving a gradual warming trend. Temperatures range from the upper 70s tomorrow and Saturday to the 80s early next week. Nighttime lows bottom out in the low to mid 50s the next several nights, which is above average for mid November.
