More sunshine and warm temps….Get ready for quite a warm up. On Sunday, high temperatures will climb into the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies. We’ll keep the 60s in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday, too. Some areas may even be in 70s early in the week.  A weak cold front will move in Monday, mainly producing a few more clouds and possibly a stray shower. Tuesday, we’ll see partly cloudy skies. Eventually, the clouds will increase ahead of a cold front. That front will slide in Wednesday, giving way to showers and a few thunderstorms. Highs will be near 60 on Wednesday, then fall into the lower 50s by Thursday. Then, by the end of next week, our weather could get a bit interesting.  Depending on the track of an area of low pressure near our area, we could see rain and a few snowflakes or rain and a lot of wind, which could lead to tidal flooding. We’ll keep a close eye on it through the week.

Saturday Night: Clear and Cold. Low temperatures in the mid 30s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly Sunny and Mild. Breezy at times. High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.

Monday: Sun and Clouds. Stray Shower (10%). High temperatures in the upper 60s. Winds: SW 5-15 mph.
