A cold front move to our south last night and high pressure is building into the area from the northwest, today will be much cooler than on Saturday with highs around 20 degrees lower than the 82 degrees that was recorded yesterday.
A low pressure system will develop to our southwest and rain with this system should move into the area before daybreak, the rain will become moderate to heavy in the morning before tapering off to showers in the afternoon and evening, highs will be nearly seasonably, expect around 1 1/2 inches of well needed rain with this system.
Some showers are likely before daybreak on Tuesday followed by gradual clearing and seasonably mild temperatures.
Wednesday will be partly sunny but some showers are possible in the afternoon and evening as a weak cold front comes through the area.
Cool and dry Thursday through the start of next weekend.
