Chilly start Monday, then a gradual warm up
Tonight and Tomorrow: Tonight, expect clear skies and calm winds. That will allow low temperatures to fall into the upper 30s to around 40. Be prepared to bundle up Monday morning. The chilly air won't last long, as afternoon highs tomorrow warm into the low 70s.
As high pressure shifts east of the area, winds will turn southerly which will warm us up gradually. By mid-week, high temperatures will approach 80, with low temperatures running 10 degrees above average. Cloud cover will begin to increase as well, but rain is not in the forecast until the weekend. A cold front is expected to move through sometime next weekend, but models are not in agreement on the timing just yet. We'll keep our eyes on it.
