A slow moving warm front will become stationary across the region today and bring a round of rain showers late in the day. As the front finally lifts northward into Wednesday, near record warm temperatures will arrive ahead of a strong cold front. This front will move through late Wednesday, bringing a round of heavy rain and wind, and perhaps a thunderstorm. Colder temperatures will then return by the end of the week and into the upcoming weekend.
