A nice stretch of fall weather on tap….If you’re a fan of fall, then this is your week!

As we move through our Tuesday afternoon, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds as an area of low pressure moves farther to our northeast. We’re not expecting any rain this afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 60s this afternoon. Tonight, we’ll see mostly clear skies. Areas of patchy fog may develop late tonight. Low temperatures will dip into the lower 40s.

On Wednesday, some of us will have to dodge areas of patchy fog in the morning. Then, the fog will give way to mostly sunny skies. Highs will be in the mid 60s. By evening, a fast-moving cold front will sink southward, delivering a few more clouds for us. But overall, our rain chances will remain slim. The front will do very little with our temperatures, too. In fact, highs are expected in the lower 60s Thursday under mostly sunny skies. Highs will warm into the mid and upper 60s by Friday and Saturday.

Then, on Saturday, a strong cold front will push across the area, delivering some very cold weather our way. We’re forecasting highs in the mid 50s on Sunday and the lower 50s on Monday.

This Afternoon: Sun and Clouds. Highs in the low 60s. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the low 40s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: Mostly Sunny. A Few PM Clouds. Highs in the mid 60s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Mostly Sunny and Mild. Highs in the lower 60s. Winds: N 5-15 mph.
