Cold temperatures to start Friday morning

You’ll probably want to grab the jacket this morning as we’re a couple degrees cooler compared to yesterday. For the most part, temperatures are in the low-to-mid 40s. Skies are clear and we’ll see plenty of sunshine throughout the day just a slight increase in clouds later this afternoon. We’ll be up to around 70° at Noon with highs pushing into the mid 70s.
