Today’s National Weather Service forecast calls for sunny skies and a high near 57 degrees.

Conditions overnight will remain clear, with a low will near 30 degrees.

Tuesday should be similar, with a high near 56 degrees, and Wednesday should be even nicer.

But we could finally get a real taste of winter for the Christmas weekend. Things take a turn on Thursday, when we’re looking at a 30 percent chance of snow, and by Saturday, expect highs in the teens.
