Tracking rain and more wacky temperatures ahead….Get ready for a roller coaster ride of weather over the next few days. We’re tracking rain and more ups and downs with our temperatures.

As we move through our Tuesday evening, expect partly cloudy skies, well in advance of a cold front that will sweep through the area tomorrow. No rain is expected tonight though. Instead, we’ll feel the chill, with overnight lows in the mid 40s.

On Wednesday, have your rain gear handy. We’ll start the day with mostly cloudy skies and an isolated shower. Rain chances will ramp up a bit through the morning into afternoon as the front gets closer to the area. In fact, there will likely be scattered showers around during our afternoon commute. High temperatures will be in the low and mid 60s.

By Thursday, after a few morning clouds, we’ll see sunshine through the afternoon. Highs will cool into the upper 50s. On Veterans Day, highs will climb back into the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies. Then, another cold front will arrive by Friday, giving way to cool, breezy weather for the weekend. Highs will be in the lower 50s on Saturday and in the mid 50s on Sunday.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy and Cool. Lows in the mid 40s. Winds: W/SW 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers (70%). Winds increase by evening. Highs in the mid 60s. Winds: SW/NW 5-15 mph.

Thursday: A Few Morning Clouds. Then, Mostly Sunny and Cool. Highs in the 50s. Winds: N 10-15 mph.
