An area of low pressure and associated cold front will continue to push to the north and east this afternoon and evening ensuring a cloudy end to the day. Temperatures will hold around the 70 degree mark.

Wednesday is expected to be a touch warmer with highs around 80 degrees. Showers will continue to be a possibility and even an isolated thunderstorm will be possible.

This pattern looks like it will continue through the remainder of the work week with partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies and a chance for showers and storms each day. Chances for storms appear to increase on Thursday and Friday and may even continue into the beginning of the weekend. Highs through the rest of the week should be near 80 degrees.
