Throughout the morning watch for those winds to die down to around 5 mph and eventually switch to the southeast for the afternoon. An increase of moisture will help build in cloud cover throughout the region with moisture increasing. Depending on how much clouds we see and how much sunshine will determine today's highs.  Temperatures are expected to reach near 72 degrees later today with mostly cloudy skies. We'll have to watch if that number should be lowered if less sunshine is found. Overnight watch for temps to only fall the the mid 50's as the clouds and moisture brings in the chance for patchy morning fog or even some light drizzle. By the afternoon watching for a cold front to push through the region bringing our first chance for some showers in quite some time. 20% chance for showers and thunderstorms lasting possibly into the early morning hours. Wednesday looks to stay dry but much colder with highs only in the upper 40's. Thursday will kick off another warming trend as temps sore back to the 70's with mostly sunny skies. Near 76 by Sunday as another cold front positions itself to drop temps to seasonal for Saturday. Back to the 70's for Sunday with our next shot at potential rain, we'll watch that as it's gets closure into the forecast.
