across the forecast area today. Temperatures south of the front will
warm into the 60s and 70s with south to southwest winds. Locations
north of the front will see much cooler temperatures with highs only
in the lower 50s on a northwest breeze.

A system will bring chances for moisture Monday, and at the same
time draw colder air across the region. This cold air will persist
for the work week and into the weekend.
