We'll have some nice sunshine coming for Wednesday and Thursday, although it will be cool with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. The early outlook for the weekend is positive: both days look dry and warmer with highs Saturday around 60 and Sunday in the mid-to-upper 60s (both days cooler at the lakeside).
