The beginning of the work week has another system nosing in over our ridge of high pressure that dried us out Sunday.
Expect mostly cloudy skies, even cooler temperatures and a few showers or areas of drizzle to persist through Tuesday afternoon.
BUT we make a big temperature jump this week from near 60 to near 80 by Wednesday and Thursday, the warmest days of the year so far for most of us.
Thursday, thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon and early evening.
By Friday and Saturday, clouds have rolled back in and we could see a few showers and cooler highs once again.
