The cold air that moved in last night will not be staying long.  We will have to deal with clouds today but as we head into SATURDAY things start to clear up and the temperatures will once again be above normal.  Temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 60's with some places reaching the low to mid 70's for MONDAY AND TUESDAY. The beginning of the work week also looks dry!
