Posted at 4:07 PM, Mar 06, 2017

Tracking 70s and rain on the way….Our temperatures are warming up, and our rain chances are going up, too.

As we move through our Monday night, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies across the area. Temperatures will be a bit cool, falling into the mid and upper 40s.

On Tuesday, breezy southerly winds will help our temperatures to climb into the lower 70s by afternoon. We’ll also see a good deal of clouds through the day.  This is all ahead of a cold front that will slide in Tuesday night, giving way to scattered showers overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning.  Some heavy downpours are possible.

Rain will linger into Wednesday morning. Otherwise, as the front moves offshore, we’ll see clearing skies. Highs will be in the mid 60s under breezy westerly winds.

We’re expecting sunshine and 60s on Thursday.  Cooler weather is in store for next weekend.
