Week of weather changes ahead

Don't look for consistent weather this week.

We'll have two very different air masses, starting with very mild conditions early in the week but ending with below-average temperatures.

In between, there will be a rainy transition day.

Most people will like the way the week starts.

Mild air will be in control today and Tuesday, with a light southwest breeze and temperatures reaching 70 degrees today. Highs on Tuesday will be in the lower 70s, or nearly 10 degrees above average.

Changes will begin to take place Wednesday, as a cold front approaches. Showers and possible a thundershower are expected to move into the area, although it appears as if the precipitation might not arrive until mid to late afternoon. It will be mild once again, with high temperatures in the low to mid 70s.

Much cooler conditions will spread into the region Thursday, with highs probably only reaching the mid 50s -- despite sunny skies. It might be even cooler Friday, with sunshine and highs only in the lower 50s.

A warm-up will begin Saturday, and at this point, the coming weekend promises to be very nice for the middle to end of November. High temperatures by Sunday will be back above average, possibly in the mid to upper 60s.
