The forecast low of 62 would be the mildest since Easter 2006, which also fell on April 16, when the low was 63. Highs Monday should have no problem reaching the lower and middle 70s after morning lows in the middle and upper 50s.
This forecast maps shows a slight chance of rain Saturday evening. The rest of the day will be partly cloudy, breezy and warm.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy skies and spotty rain showers continue with an overnight low temperature of 61 degrees.
