Spectacular Day and Weekend Ahead

With high pressure over and to the east of us, clear skies extend over most of the area...except some fog in lower elevation near water or in valleys. But sun will reign this afternoon. We got cold last night...even down to freezing...with the clear skies (even some black ice is possible). Temperatures should be above normal today...with much of the low lands getting into the lower to mid sixties. Some favored locations could approach 70. An offshore front is now approaching (see image) and should get here tonight, but will be quite weak, with only a few showers overnight. Another weak front on Friday...but then a major ridge...area of high pressure..will build over the region over the weekend. We should see sunny skies and above normal temps. Plan your outing now.
