The beautiful spring weather we had this weekend will take us into the new work week.

Tonight:
Mainly clear and unseasonably cool
Lows: 39-49°
Wind: NW 5 mph
Tomorrow Morning:
Sunny and cool
Temperatures: 40s and 50s
Wind: NW 5 mph
Tomorrow Afternoon:
Partly to mostly sunny and delightful
Highs: Upper 60s to low 70s

What a spectacular spring weekend we had!  The same tranquil airmass overhead will stick with us through Tuesday.  High pressure will keep us dry both days with slightly warmer highs each day.  By Wednesday, a cold front will approach from the west and will bump high temperatures into the lower 80s by Wednesday.  You'll also notice higher humidity.  As the warm front lifts north of us Tuesday night, that could squeeze out a few showers.  Otherwise, expect a few more scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop Wednesday afternoon and night. 

Temperatures will gradually drop by the end of the week back into the mid 70s.  Even though the bulk of the precipitation will be out of here by Wednesday, additional slight chances for showers are possible through Saturday as the upper level energy swings out.  Overall, next weekend (Memorial Day weekend) looks pretty nice.  Perfect for the pools opening and lots of barbeques.  Stay with StormWatch7 for updates to the forecast.
