After a period of cool, rainy weather early in the week, temperatures will begin to rebound as the week moves forward.

"Wednesday will be a windy and cooler day with some sunshine," AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said. "There will be a gusty northwest wind at 15-25 mph with high temperatures in the middle 50s, about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year."

Overnight lows will sink down to around 35 F, before temperatures begin to climb Thursday.

"A warmer day is expected Thursday with plenty of sunshine and high temperatures around 65 F," Edwards said.

The warming trend will continue as temperatures rise into the low 70s by Friday.

"There will be more clouds and perhaps a shower as a weak front pushes through," he said.

"It'll remain in the 70s on Saturday with another shower or two before cooler weather returns on Sunday."
