This will initially bring northerly breezes and variable cloudiness to northern areas before the front moves deeper into the southwest and cools things down there Saturday night into Sunday. Generally dry weather is expected until later Sunday afternoon and evening when a passing shortwave brings chances of shower and thunderstorm activity with peaking coverage on Monday.

Transient ridging is likely to move in on Tuesday, boosting temperatures to around 10 to 15 degrees above average back into the 80’s for most of the region. The mid-week period may see cooler temperatures closer to average and increased winds.
