A weak cold front will cross the area tonight but Monday’s temperatures will still be slightly above normal, the day will start off sunny with increasing cloudiness later in the day.
A rather strong storm system will give us mostly rain Tuesday into Wednesday although inland may see a wintry mix Tuesday morning, temperatures will become quite mild late Tuesday into Wednesday. A cold front will cross the area Wednesday afternoon.
