High pressure off the coast will bring in a southerly flow of air which in turn will bring us warming temperatures this afternoon. That warm up will linger into the middle of the upcoming week.
Early sunshine this morning will begin to mix with some high clouds this afternoon. Highs will top out in the upper 60s to around 70 this afternoon. Clouds will increase tonight as a cold front approaches from the west with lows dropping back into the lower and middle 50s. There is the chance for a few scattered light showers tonight.
Today's warm up is the beginning of a warmer weather pattern that will last through mid-week. A cold front to our north brings a chance for showers Sunday night with lows in the lower 50s. Some sunshine will mix with clouds on Monday but we will warm into the lower 70s Monday afternoon.
Some record high temps may be challenged Tuesday and Wednesday with an upper level ridge in place along with continued southwesterly wind flow. Many will get to upper 70s and even near 80 if we can get enough sun. Another cold front moves through late Wednesday and stalls to our southeast, then low pressure looks to move toward New England with a good rain potential to end the week. We also look to turn cooler with this system.
