for the rest of the week

we’ll start of cool Sunday and  Monday with highs in the 60’s after chilly starts with possible upper 30’s for lows. sunny skies should hold through Thursday by then southerly flow on the backside of a high should allow highs to climb into the low 80’s.

    MONDAY MORNING.
