afternoon and it might be a little bit more breezy so if you got to put it off until tomorrow, you can but today is really the ideal day to get that stuff done. your exclusive accuweather 7-day forecast, today's high is 59 degrees, mostly sunny, very similar sky cover as to what we had yesterday. maybe some of those clouds that we saw just out to the west on satellite managed to pop through briefly but i generally think it's going to be pretty bright. still fairly sunny on wednesday with a high of 62. it will be breezier though and i think in the afternoon the temperatures will have a tendency to fall a good deal through the 50 and then thursday clouds and sun, it will be cooler with a high of 54 degrees. at night a couple of sprinkles and showers are possible. it doesn't look like much on most of the models and it now looks like that's done before dawn on friday. so, friday we'll just call it partly sunny and 52. for the weekend, saturday sun mixing with a few clouds, 52 degrees, dry. and on sunday, sun in the morning probably gives way to a little bit more cloud cover in the afternoon. overall i'll call it partly sunny. and it still looks fairly seasonable with a high of 53 on sunday.
