Warm, spring-like conditions will continue today, forecasters say, with high temperatures near 70 and sunny conditions with very light winds. Highs throughout the area will be five to 10 degrees above normal for this time of year, the National Weather Service says.

Clouds are expected to move in Friday and stay for a couple of days, but they won’t bring any rainfall. That will come next week; forecasters predict a 70 percent chance of rain by Tuesday, with a high of only 57 degrees and lows in the 30s.

Most of the action will be in the mountains, where forecasters predict a “potentially significant snowfall event.”
