Tracking temps in the 70s and 80s….Get ready for a big warm up as we begin the work week! High pressure will continue to build over the area, keeping a lot of the clouds away and allowing our temps to warm up. So, on Monday, expect mostly sunny skies. High temperatures will climb into the mid and upper 70s. A few inland communities could reach the lower 80s by afternoon. On Tuesday, highs will soar into the low and mid 80s under mostly sunny skies. A weak cold front will move in from the north late Tuesday into Wednesday, but instead of bringing rain, the front will deliver slightly cooler weather on Wednesday. Highs will be in the lower 60s. Our temperatures will rebound back into the 70s Thursday and Friday, just in time for another cold front to move in, giving way to rain and possibly thunderstorms Friday.

Tonight: Clear and Chilly. Low temperatures in the low and mid 40s. Winds: N/NE 5-10 mph.

Monday: Mostly Sunny and Warm. High temperatures in the mid and upper 70s. Winds: NW-N 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Mostly Sunny. Warmer. High temperatures in the low and mid 80s. Winds: N 5-15 mph.
