Tracking a few showers and a temperature roller coaster ride….We’re tracking a few showers in your forecast along with a range of temperatures, with highs from the 40s to the 70s – all in one week!

As we move through our Monday night, expect increasing clouds ahead of a cold front that will bring some of us scattered showers late tonight into early Tuesday morning. Low temperatures will be in the mid 40s.

A few early morning showers are possible on Tuesday. Otherwise, as we go through the day, we’ll see partly sunny skies through the morning and afternoon. Highs will be in the mid and upper 60s. Then, later Tuesday evening and night, a few more showers may trickle in. Some of that rain may stick around into early Wednesday morning. Once we move into our Wednesday afternoon, we’ll see clearing skies. It’s going to be chilly, with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s, with gusty northerly winds.

We’ll see mostly sunny skies on Thursday. High temperatures will be in the mid 40s. Highs will climb back into the 60s by Friday and into the 70s by Saturday.
