Sunshine today follows a gusty, rainy night

The wind blew and blew. And then there was silence. And today it’s like last night’s storm never happened.

There were reports of fallen trees and power lines during the storm, but no reports of any injuries, Simpson said.

Today will bring a quick turnaround of increasingly sunny skies and temperatures slightly above normal, in the low to mid-40s.

On Thursday, too, the sun will shine, though the day will be colder. Expect temperatures to reach only the mid-30s, slightly below normal.

There’s a chance for predawn showers Friday, including light flurries that won’t accumulate, Simpson said.

These showers will be mostly light, scattered throughout the day -- though there’s no chance of snow by afternoon, when temperatures will reach the mid-40s.
