The weak disturbance that caused the light rain overnight has moved offshore and we should have some clearing this morning, but clouds will return this afternoon as a cold front approaches the area. Showers will develop by late this afternoon with showers tonight with even a rumble of thunder possible, highs will again be near 60 degrees.
High pressure will then build into the area on Wednesday giving us mostly sunny skies, it will be breezy and temperatures will only be a little cooler than today.
Sunny weather with seasonably mild temperatures continuing on Thursday.
It still appears that the coastal low will move too far offshore to give our area any significant precipitation on Friday, there will be a chance of rain developing late in the morning possibly changing to a mix of snow before ending by midnight.
Dry weather is anticipated for the weekend, Saturday will be cool but it should be milder on Sunday.
Quite mild again early next week.
