EVENING: Mostly cloudy, temperatures in the 20s.

TONIGHT: Partial clearing overnight. Lows near 20.

TUESDAY: Clearing skies, more seasonable. High 36.

We start off the week cold, but not near as cold as our Christmas weekend. The arctic grip will loosen this week and we should be more seasonable by Wednesday. A ridge of high pressure keeps us dry all week, which is good for anyone who wants to spend time outdoors between the holidays.

New Years weekend will see a significant warm-up, but it also brings a round of rain. We expect rain to develop for the second half of Saturday and continue into Saturday evening. A few lingering showers are also possible Sunday as high temperatures reach the 50s for both Saturday and Sunday.
