Sunday Night Forecast
Tonight and Tomorrow: Tonight, expect a partly cloudy sky with chilly overnight lows in the upper 40s and low 50s. Monday afternoon, we'll have a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the low to mid 70s.
Our weather pattern will remain quiet for much of the week ahead. A strong cold front will move through the region late Tuesday night, into Wednesday. This front will not bring any rainfall, but will usher in more cool air. High and low temperatures will be below average the next several days. Our next chance for rain will return at the end of the week. Timing right now looks like Friday night and Saturday. Heavy downpours will be possible with the set up late week, so will be something to monitor.
