A mild start to the week, but more 70s are on the way….If you enjoyed the warm weather over the weekend, more of that weather is on its way back.

As we move through our Monday night, expect a few clouds out there. It’s going to be chilly, with low temperatures in the lower 40s.

On Tuesday, we’ll see a few more clouds, but we’ll still see the sun. Highs will be a tad cooler, into the upper 50s.  On Wednesday, a cold front will approach us, but it won’t quite make it all the way through the viewing area. Still, we’ll see a good deal of clouds. An isolated shower is possible. Highs will be in the mid 60s.

We could see a couple of more isolated showers as we approach the end of the work week. Highs on Thursday and Friday will warm into the lower 70s. Higher rain chances slide in on Saturday. A few thunderstorms are possible by then. Highs will be near 70.

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Cool. Lows in the lower 40s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Partly Cloudy and Cooler. Highs in the upper 50s. Winds: E/SE 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: More Clouds Than Sun. Slight Chance of a Shower (20%). Highs in the mid 60s. Winds:
