After a warm but windy Wednesday, a weak cold front will be pushing through the region Wednesday night that will bring scattered rain showers overnight, the National Weather Service said.

Temperatures are expected to drop to the 30s at night but rebound Thursday, the weather service said.
 "Skies will clear by early Thursday as high pressure builds in from the west. Dry conditions are expected as a result," the weather service said in its regional summary.

Wind gusts Wednesday will ease but they could still reach 20 mph overnight and leave breezy conditions for Thursday. The above-average temperatures will continue Thursday, with a high of about 50 degrees expected.

There is a 40% chance of showers on Friday after 11 a.m., which could last into the night and even mix with snow after 9 p.m., the weather service said. A high of 46 degrees is expected.

Saturday and Sunday both should be sunny, the weather service said.

Saturday will be much cooler — a high of 42 degrees is forecast.

Sunday’s sun should help raise the temperature to 51 degrees.

Monday should be clear and several degrees warmer, the weather service said, though clouds will roll in that night.
