This week is expected to start with cool days and cold nights before temperatures return to the mid 70s by the weekend.
According to the National Weather Service, the temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will be in the low 60s, while overnight temperatures are projected to drop to the mid 30s. The cold front is expected to blow out by Wednesday and temperatures should return to the 70s for the remainder of the week.
Monday’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high of 61 degrees. The air is expected to have an increased chill to it from the 20 mph winds as well. Blowing dust could be an issue for commuters as gusts could reach up to 30 mph toward the evening.
