High pressure will remain over the region today keeping skies fair, winds low, and temperatures above normal. As the high slides offshore overnight, a low will approach from the west spreading clouds back in over the region. A light return flow on the backside of the high will keep temperatures moderate overnight allowing for high temperatures to rebound to above normal readings on Thursday. The incoming low will keep skies generally cloudy on Thursday and a few showers might be possible by the afternoon after some daytime heating.
