Warmer, breezy Thursday

The wintry cold weather that has gripped the area over the last few days will retreat back north as it’s replaced by mild Pacific air resulting in a much warmer day for Thursdsay.

It’ll be a bright and sunny day as high pressure remains perched overhead.

A breezy southerly wind gusting up to 30 mph at times will help drive in the warmer air.

High temperatures are expected to climb into the low-to-mid 50s which is more than 20° above average for this time of year.
