Less rain and humidity
A cold front has moved through the area and as a result we are finally seeing rain showers wrapping up after 24 hours of an active radar that began lighting up on Sunday Morning. Still, some cloud cover is lingering behind this front, and will be slow to break. Temperatures have fallen into the upper 30s with northerly winds behind the front and that will mean the humidity felt this weekend will keep away as well. Into this afternoon, clouds will give way to some peaks of sun and thermometers will top out in the middle 50s. The temperature trend tonight is a tricky forecast. They may fall early and bottom out in the upper 40s before rising closer to Tuesday Morning with a warm front lifting into the area. This will also return humidity and rain chances.
