After a clear and dry end to the weekend, we’re starting off our work week with lots of sunshine! High temperatures will still be cooler than average, but we’ll remain comfortable nonetheless, topping out near 70° this afternoon. We’ll warm up into the mid-upper 70s Tuesday afternoon ahead of our next cold front, set to arrive Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Rain chances will be limited to none with this front, but cooler temperatures will usher in behind!

Highs will only reach the mid 60s Wednesday afternoon and morning lows will be on either side of 40° by Thursday morning! Abundant sunshine will help to warm us back up into the 70s as we wrap up the work week & high pressure will keep us dry through much of Friday.

Another system will be moving through Friday-Saturday, however, and will actually bring with it the opportunity for showers and thunderstorms, some on the stronger side. The rain won’t last all weekend but could impact some early Saturday plans. Temperatures won’t alter much into Sunday, staying in the mid 70s both weekend afternoons, even lifting to near 80° by the start of next week!

First Alert Forecast: seasonable, quiet start to the work week
