It's starting off a little cool and cloudy this morning, but no rain on radar and I'm not expecting any rain until possibly late Sunday into early Monday now.

The sun will make a grand entrance by late morning into early afternoon, as we warm up into the lower eighties. Temperatures will warm even more this weekend. Highs tomorrow in the mid eighties, and we will approach 90゚ Saturday and Sunday.

Now here's where the forecast gets tricky. Weather data conflicts on the timing of our next cold front now. Some data suggests towards midnight Sunday with some strong storms, other data keeps ut north of us until Tuesday afternoon.

I am going to go out on a limb and say the front will arrive towards midnight Sunday into early Monday. If this does occur, which I think it will, scattered strong to severe thunderstorms will blow through here why you're sleeping into early Monday morning.

You'll wake up to gusty northerly winds and rapidly decreasing clouds as temperatures struggle to get above 70゚.

Dust off your jackets for Tuesday morning as readings will fall well into the fifties. Temperatures by afternoon will warm into the mid 70s.

A slow warm will take place through the rest of the week.
