Weather Summary:

Following yesterday's storm system, winds have shifted to come from the northwest.  This is feeding us with ample cloud cover and cooler temperatures as well.  High temperatures were experienced later this morning, but cooled a bit during the afternoon.  We will continue to cool through the night with periods of clearing late.  Low temperatures are expected to be in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Monday and Tuesday appear uneventful with partly cloudy skies, breezy conditions on Monday and temperature running well below average in the low to mid 60s.  High pressure tries to sneak in and lend us to more sunshine than what we've seen over days passed.  Temperatures will still be rather cool for this time of year.  Breezy conditions are likely on Monday afternoon, but likely won't be enough to warrant any wind advisories at this time. 

A disturbance over the Desert Southwest will act together with Gulf Moisture late Tuesday night to provide us with periods of rain.  Rain chances are highest during the day on Wednesday as moisture continues to be pumped into the region.  Some heavier showers are possible, embedded in the cluster especially along the higher terrain.  Showers should start to taper off gradually early on Thursday as low pressure pulls away and off the east coast.  This will make way for much more pleasant weather.

Afterwards, Friday and Saturday look pleasant with a warm up on the way.  High pressure will sit on top of the southeastern US, lending us to sunshine and temperatures in the upper 60s to 70s.

Recap: Highs in the 60s through Friday...70s Saturday and Sunday. Lows near 40 tonight, 30s Monday night, and 40s through the remainder of the week.

Our average high is 71°, low 45°.
