-- Changed Discussion --
High pressure will push east allowing a cold front to reach the area late Sunday night into Monday, with a second cold front pushing east by Tuesday. Models also indicate an upper level trough should build across the region late in the period. Expect precipitation chances will increase from the west Sunday night with unsettled weather through the remainder of the period. Temperatures aloft will become quite cool/cold with the trough building in. However, surface temperatures should act to keep the precipitation in the form of a cold rain.
