We'll see a partly-cloudy day on Monday... highs should top out in the upper-70's. We might see a few
showers in the late afternoon and evening. A cool front will drop through the state late Tuesday and
again give us a chance for showers. Behind it, temperatures will top out in the upper sixties on
Wednesday and Thursday... but Friday and Saturday look warmer again.
