A soggy Tuesday… Rain will build in this morning as a cold front pushes east. Expect cloudy skies today with rain showers for much of the day. Rain could be heavy at times with a thunderstorm possible. Temperatures will warm into the mid 60s by midday then will start to cool this afternoon as the front moves through. It will be breezy today as winds shift from SW to north.

Showers should taper off overnight with a few clouds lingering into early Wednesday. Skies will clear tomorrow but it will be much cooler behind the front with highs in the mid 50s. Winds will ramp up tomorrow with gusts to near 30 mph. Highs will stay in the 50s and low 60s to finish the work week with a nice mix of sun and clouds.
