Our winds are becoming more southerly, which is the main factor in causing warmer overnight temperatures for the region. No freezes are expected as lows will fall into the lower 40s early, then rise slightly by dawn with the south wind flow and its moisture bumping up readings and forming some scattered cloudiness. A broad low-pressure system will slide to our north Tuesday, but its attached cold front will swing its way into our area. With the increase in moisture, some rain action is possible, especially north and west areas, with lesser coverage southeast. Highs should manage to reach the 70° mark, with higher max temps in south and eastern locations. A temporary shot of dryness will follow by Wednesday before the local weather pattern returns to prolonged unsettledness with stationary frontal systems and occasional waves of rain and thunderstorms for the end of the week.
