Weather Summary:

StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a cold front that will slide into the region this evening. Scattered showers and isolated storms are possible through the evening. A few storms could produce brief downpours and gusty winds in spots.

Showers will end by midnight most areas. Skies will become partly cloudy tonight, which will lead to areas of fog. Monday will be much cooler with highs only in the mid 60s to near 70! Morning clouds and fog will give way to sunshine in the afternoon.

Clear skies, dry air, and light winds will allow temperatures to drop like a rock Monday night! I'm expecting the coolest night since May with lows in the upper 30s mountains and lower to middle 40s in the valleys! Dig out that winter coat! Fall begins Monday evening at 10:29... and it is going to feel like the season this week.

A large area of high pressure will settle in and become the main weather feature for this week. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny. Humidity levels will be low with cool nights and warm days... perfect weather to kick start the fall color! A few more clouds are expected by late week as a storm system develops to our southeast. Right now the rain from that system is expected to stay to our south and east through Saturday.

Highs Monday only in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Mid to upper 70s the rest of the week. Lows will be in the lower to middle 50s tonight. Chilly nights are ahead this week with lows in the 40s Monday through Wednesday nights and in the lower to middle 50s Thursday through Saturday nights.

Our normal high is 77°, low 53°.
