    Through tonight we will see mostly cloudy skies. No rain is expected despite the cloud coverage. The winds are still blowing out of the south and will continue to blow up to 15 mph overnight. This will keep our temperatures warm. Overnight, we will struggle to get out of the 70s, like last night. Over the weekend, we are still not expecting any rain for our Saturday. Instead, we will have mostly cloudy skies. The sun will try to peek through at times.
