Cloud cover will increase today as southeasterly winds pump in moisture ahead of our cold front. There may be a light shower or two later today, but most will be dry until the overnight hours as the front gets closer. Rain and a few storms are likely overnight and tomorrow morning. Highs today will reach the upper 70s.

Once the front passes tomorrow, the clouds will break up and your Tuesday afternoon will be nice and breezy. Afternoon temperatures will likely be in the mid-60s. By Wednesday and Thursday, cooler air will continue to settle across the area allowing highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. Expect sunny and dry conditions as well. Morning lows will reach the 30s and 40s by the late part of the week, but no freezes are forecast at this time.

Another front will arrive this weekend, likely sparking up rain on Saturday.
