Some of us hit the 70° mark yesterday, so of course we may see a few snowflakes tomorrow night!

A strong Canadian cold front will approach the region on Tuesday. Ahead of that front expect a gusty southwest wind that will push temperatures well into the 50s.

This cold front won't have much moisture to work with. However, as it passes Tuesday evening we may see a few raindrops or even a few snowflakes fall.

Behind the front on Wednesday it will be sharply colder, with high temperatures only in the mid-to-upper 30s, despite plenty of sunshine.

But after that, we will enjoy a warming trend through the rest of the work week and into the weekend.

We will climb into the upper 40s on Thursday, the 50s on Friday and to near 60° on Saturday.

However we may see some wet weather with the warm weather on Saturday. We are forecasting a 40% chance for showers. And some of those could linger into early on Sunday. But most of the day is looking dry.

And then sunshine returns for Martin Luther King Day on Monday with high temperatures in the upper 40s.
