It is quite common to see an unusual warm up before a strong cold front moves in. This is exactly what we will see over the next 7 days. Expect afternoon highs to warm into the lower 80's ( well above normal) this work week. Friday will see a good rain chance in the late afternoon and evening as the cold front arrives. Then much cooler Saturday with a north wind at 15 mph. Then lows in the 40's Sunday and Monday morning with highs only in the 60's (well below normal). Looking forward to the cool down!
