Sunny but much cooler… A cold front moved through the area last night, bringing in cooler air. We will start in the 50s this morning but highs will only climb into the mid 60s this afternoon, about 20 degrees cooler than yesterday. Expect a few leftover clouds this morning then plenty of sunshine.

We will warm back into the 70s to end the work week, low 70s for Thursday and upper 70s for Friday. Clouds will build in Thursday afternoon as our next cold front moves in. We could see a few isolated showers Thursday but most of the rain will move in Friday. Showers and storms will move in with the cold front, mainly Friday afternoon and evening.

A few showers could linger into Saturday morning but most of the weekend will be dry. Expect clearing skies and highs in the 60s on Saturday. Highs will return to the 70s with sunshine on Sunday.
