THURSDAY AFTERNOON: Expect sunny or partly cloudy skies. Brisk northwest winds of mainly 10 to 15mph will hold temperatures in-check (highs: upper 40s).
 
MLK WEEKEND HIGHLIGHTS: Daily highs will likely rebound to the 50s Friday, fall to the 40s behind the aforementioned second cold front, then build back to the 50s late in the weekend.
