After a beautiful but cool Presidents Day, what is in store for the week ahead? Talk of 70s by the end of the week...

Tonight: Mostly Clear, Chilly

Lows: Upper 20s to Low 30s | Wind: NE 5 m.p.h.

Tuesday: Partly Cloudy, Breezy & Mild

Highs: Low 50s | Wind: S 10-15 m.p.h.

Wednesday: Partly Sunny, Warm

Highs: Near 60 | Wind: W 5-10 m.p.h.

High pressure built across the region today and provided periods of cloud-less blue skies. As the center of high pressure moves overhead tonight, the winds will drop off and so will the temperatures. Over the next several days you will forget the little taste of winter we saw yesterday. Prevailing south and southwesterly winds will push temperatures through the 50s and into the 60s this week. In fact, the temperature may come within a degree or two of the 70 degree mark in spots on Thursday. The approach of a cold front will give us a slight chance of a shower on Thursday. Shower chances will increase on Friday and it is not out of the question an isolated thunderstorm or two could develop ahead of the cold front. Clearing skies and more seasonable temperatures are likely this weekend.
