- more hours of sun than the previous Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday combined.

- punchy westerly winds sustained around 10 mph and with possible gusts in the 20s.

Your long-range forecast features welcome weekend dryness with one possible exception: an upper-level impulse may wring-out a stray shower or rogue flurry Saturday.
