Monday and Tuesday will bring drier conditions with plenty of sunshine overhead as lows sit in the 40s and highs in the 60s. Expect a pair of 11 for the early part of the week on the Wizometer, making for a great couple of days.

By Wednesday morning, rain chances return to the forecast, which are sparked by a cold front passing through.

Temperatures will still rise into the 60s for highs in the afternoon, but temperatures will fall for Thursday and Friday.

Expect lows in the 30s to 40s and highs in the mid 50s to end the week, which is back below average for this time of year.
