This evening the winds will lessen up a bit and temperatures will still be on the mild-side. Any Friday night plans should be just fine with temperatures cooling down into the 50s. Overnight, clouds will increase and rain is likely towards Saturday morning. Lows are going to be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
