A weakening cold front will approach the region today, and may not even pass through the area before dissipating. Despite the fact that this frontal system may not even bring any rainfall to the region, it does appear to bring some increased cloud cover. Temperatures will remain above seasonal averages today, and through the midweek period.
A brief warm up is expected tomorrow, as a warm front approaches the region, passing through the area during the daytime hours. A stronger cold front will follow during the day on Wednesday. This frontal system will bring a better chance for some showers to the region. A cooler airmass, with a more seasonal temperature profile, will follow through the end of the week and into the coming weekend.
Yet another in the line of fast moving frontal systems looks to approach the area over the weekend, arriving late on Saturday and early Sunday, however, not much in the way of moisture availability looks to be present. Another shot of cooler air follows the frontal system to close out the weekend.
