Chilly Day Ahead

*Monday Morning Notes*
Mostly light rain will continue today as clouds stick around. Rain again on Tuesday with a blustery day and finally, on Wednesday, we'll see sunshine. Temperatures are expected in the upper 50's today, lower 60's on Tuesday and middle 60's by Wednesday. Dress appropriately for the weather. A sneak peak for the weekend says the skies will be sunny and temperatures warm (upper 70's!).
