BRISK START TO WEEKEND
Winds will be quite gusty for the next 24 to 36 hours before relaxing Sunday. This will make temperatures feel much colder. Clouds will eventually break up some through the night. Under partly cloudy skies, lows will drop fast to the mid and upper 20s. With the breeze, it will feel like the teens briefly. Not a lot of sunshine expected, and what we do see will mix with a lot of clouds.
