A weak and diffuse cold front will move through area tonight.
Initially this will be nothing more than just a wind shift to the
more of due north direction. But cooler air will build southward
into the area through the day such that temperatures will be a bit
below normal with highs in the lower to middle 60s. The high
pressure associated with this cooler air will help keep temperatures
cool through Friday. As the high shifts to the east, winds will
swing back to the south and allow for temperatures to warm up closer
to or above normal for the weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday should
top out in the middle 70s. Moisture will be slower to work north so
the warmer days will be accompanied by chilly mornings as lows fall
into the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Our next chance for precipitation isn`t expected until the middle
part of next week as rich enough moisture streams back into the
area. This should occur as upper level flow becomes more
southwesterly with a ridge over the Southeast and deepening trough
moving into the West Coast. Persistent southerly low level flow over
the center part of the country will help advect moisture northward
and eventually lead to good chance for precipitation as a weak,
possibly leading shortwave trough moves through. The main trough
doesn`t look to move east into the Plains until later in the week.

VFR stratus layer will linger through the evening and overnight hours
with northeast winds gradually backing through the period. May see
some sprinkles in the early morning hours, though should anything
develop, these will taper off by the mid-morning. Cloud cover will
begin to scatter out through the early afternoon with surface winds
becoming northwesterly.
