It's been weekend after weekend of rain or cold cloudy days, but things should change this weekend. "We're looking at a pretty decent weekend, really," said David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. "We're in for a nice dry trend here."

Today will be mostly sunny with highs in the 60s followed by the same temperatures tomorrow, albeit partly cloudy. By Sunday, which is also when Daylight Savings Time begins (put your clocks one hour ahead), "mostly sunny" will return with warmer temperatures: highs around 70 with locally gusty--15 to 25 mph--winds through passes in canyons in the morning.

Then comes Monday and Tuesday. "We'll get a little taste of Spring by early next week," said Sweet. Predictions put the temperatures in the upper 70s and 80s.
