A weakening cold front will fall through the state today and along it, we'll see some spotty rain showers, especially during the first part of the day. Without rain showers, your location will be mostly cloudy with breaks of sunshine becoming more numerous from north to south as the day advances. I don't look for any heavier rain showers as there is very little moisture with this front overall. Also weak, you may not notice a sensible difference in your weather behind the front as little more than a shift in wind direction is expected.

If you did not like last week's cold temperatures, you'll likely be a big fan of the direction thermometers are going this week. Daytime highs were below average from November 23-30. A broad area of high pressure is settled to our northeast. This means surface winds have shifted to the south and are carrying warmer and more moist air in from the Gulf. Beginning today, highs will check in at or above average through Friday with a spike of near 80° on Thursday. As far as nighttime lows go, no more freezing. Look for morning temps to bottom out in the upper 50s and lower 60s all week long.
