The National Weather Service has posted a High Wind Watch for late tonight through Saturday so our blue skies this morning will likely give way to some nasty weather by tonight. KAST 1370 Meteorologist Rick Van Cise puts it this way saying "This is an "in between" day, which is my weather shorthand for saying we'll have a generally dry Friday with clouds and some breaks in the overcast before the next storm arrives. Tonight the rain increases along with some pretty stout southwesterlies and westerlies that will gust in the 40 mph range Saturday before easing later in the day. Highs will top out in the mid 50s today, barely to 50tomorrow with overnight lows in the upper 40s. The National Weather Service says be prepared for some potential minor flooding along low lying beach areas during Saturday's high tides due to some hefty swells of 20 feet or so."
