Southerly winds will boost our temperatures into the lower 70s by Monday afternoon under a mix of sun and clouds. By late afternoon into the evening, a cold front will move in from the north, giving way to a few more clouds and a some scattered showers from north to south.  A couple of showers could linger into the overnight.

By next weekend, highs will be in the mid 40s. Enjoy our week!
