Skies will begin to clear up Saturday afternoon, leading us into a dry stretch with warming temperatures. Highs will reach the low 70s by early next week as a ridging pattern settles in. 

There is a cold front that will push through, just in time to bring Santa some cooler temperatures on Christmas Eve. This cold front looks to be dry at this time, so no rain is expected.
