After some areas of morning fog, the region is enjoying a mostly sunny afternoon with current readings at 1 p.m. in the upper 60s to around 70. The temperature may climb a couple of more degrees in the next few hours. Meanwhile, a cold front is approaching from the west. This front will be largely uneventful other than increasing cloudiness and scattered rain showers Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening. Milder air moving north ahead of the front will enable temperatures to reach the low 70s on Wednesday afternoon, a mark that will be the warmest of the week. Once the front clears the area on Thursday, sunshine returns along with a shift in the wind to the north/northwest. High pressure builds overhead on Thursday and Friday. Temperatures will be seasonably cool with lows in the upper 40s and highs in the mid to upper 60s.
