...Much Colder...Shower Chances Through The Week...

.DISCUSSION...Fall returns in earnest for the upcoming week as the
upper level flow becomes northwesterly. Colder Canadian air will funnel
southward as a result, leading to highs mostly in the 40s to 50s for the
better part of the week. A few weather systems will also spin across the
region, resulting in periodic chances for showers. Temperatures will
be cold enough at times that snow will be possible. In addition, winds
look to be blustery Monday and Tuesday, and again Friday.
