More warm weather and a chance of storms….Did you enjoy the weather this weekend? Well, if you liked the warm temperatures, we have more days like it for the early part of the work week before a few thunderstorms arrive. But as we move through our Monday, expect high temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. A weak cold front will move in Monday, mainly producing a few more clouds and possibly a stray shower or two. It will also be breezy at times during the day as the front moves through. On Tuesday, we’ll see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the mid 60s.  Late in the day, the clouds will thicken ahead of another cold front. That front will slide in Wednesday, giving way to showers and a few isolated thunderstorms.  High temperatures will warm into the mid 60s on Wednesday, then fall into the upper 40s and lower 50s by Thursday. Then, by the end of the week, our weather could get a bit interesting.  Depending on the track of an area of low pressure over the area, we could see rain, wind and possibly a few snowflakes by Friday. We’ll watch it closely.

Tonight: Mostly Clear. Chilly and Breezy. Overnight low temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: SW 10-20 mph.

Monday: Clouds and Sun. Isolated Shower (20%). Breezy at times. High temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Winds: W/SW 10-20 mph.

Tuesday: A Few Clouds. Mild. High temperatures in the mid 60s. Winds: SE 5-10 mph.
