Grab the rain gear for today. Rain will move in from the south early this morning and will stick around for much of the day.

Between a half an inch to an inch of rain is possible before the rain wraps up before dawn tomorrow.

Temperatures will be quite cool through the day; only in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Temperatures will climb into the middle and upper 50s through the overnight hours, as the rain begins to taper off. With a lot of moisture in the air, fog will develop overnight. Besides a few predawn showers Tuesday, most of the day will be partly sunny, warmer, and breezy. Highs will climb into the lower and middle 60s. The rest of the week brings dry and comfortable, spring-time temperatures. Highs will gradually rise into the lower 70s by week's end. As a weak front slides through late Friday a few showers will be possible, but otherwise it will just turn breezy as the front passes. This will make way for, what looks like now, another sunny and warm weekend. Have a great day!
