The upper level low will slowly exit the region on Monday but
clouds and lingering showers will remain across the eastern half
of the area through at least Monday morning or midday. Clouds will
not start clearing from west to east until Monday night. Tuesday
will be a better day and milder with some sun and clouds and highs
in the upper 60s. Another weak cold front will move through
Tuesday night into Wednesday with a few showers. The overall
weather pattern for the rest of the week will be in a northwest
