"It will be a beautiful day, just a bit chilly to start," Griffith said.

After mid- to upper 40s by 7 a.m., temperatures will rise to the mid- and upper 70s in clear, sunny skies, forecasters said.

Thursday night, going into Friday, temperatures will be in the 50s, with a 30-40-percent chance of showers through the day.
