We ended the weekend with pleasant weather today with sunshine and temperatures in the 60s. Tomorrow looks to be sunny as well with highs reaching the mid 50s. Another cold front is headed our way Monday evening and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. After the cold front moves in on Tuesday, the high temperatures for the area will stay in the 50s and reach the 60s by the end of the week.
