Sunny and warm on Monday as a high pressure system gives us a break from the clouds. On Tuesday, a low pressure system swings a cold front through the region with rain showers changing to snow showers late. Behind this front, much colder air moves in on Wednesday making it feel like winter again. Eventually we warm back up towards the end of the week.

Great weather to get outdoors on Monday. Starting in the mid 30s in the morning with mostly sunny skies. By the afternoon, temperatures quickly rise to 50 degrees. Holding onto that sunshine throughout the day. Temperatures sink into the mid 40s during the evening. This is thanks to a high pressure system, which causes sinking air. Sinking air warms and any moisture in the air will evaporate. This means that no clouds are able to form. Overnight, we will have increasing clouds as a low pressure system approaches the region. Lows will be in the lower 30s.

Tuesday, a low pressure system brings foul weather to the region. In the morning, increasing clouds then rain showers as a warm front moves through the region early. We will reach our high temperatures before noon, in the upper 40s. By the afternoon, a cold front moves through and temperatures will decrease as the rain showers continue. By Tuesday evening, temperatures will be around freezing and the rain will change to snow. A trace to a couple inches of snowfall accumulation is possible, especially for the higher elevations. Overnight, the snow lingers with lows in the mid 20s.

Behind this cold front, much colder air moves in from the north on Wednesday. We will dry out with partly cloudy skies, but highs will only reach the upper 30s. On top of that, it will feel like 20s because of strong winds around 20mph, with gusts up to 30mph. Overnight, lows will drop into the mid 20s again. At least we will stay dry with partly clear skies.

Mild weather returns towards the end of the week. Highs will be in the lower 50s on Thursday, into the upper 50s for Friday and Saturday.
