Tuesday will be the nicest day of the week. Expect a mix of sun and clouds, with afternoon temperatures warming into the upper 60s to near 70 degrees.

Colder air arrives Wednesday; afternoon highs will stay in the 50s to lower 60s Wednesday through Sunday, with morning temperatures in the low and mid 30s.

A weak upper wave moves through on Wednesday, and again on Saturday. Both will be moisture-starved, and any rain that falls from these will be very spotty and very light. Most will stay dry.
