Lows overnight are expected to drop into the upper 50s, thanks to the cold front turning winds to out of the north. This will also help to clear out those clouds and keep temperatures cooler through the day on Sunday. Temperatures will struggle to get out of the 60s during the day even though ample sunshine is expected. Overnight clouds build and temperatures drop into the low 50s.

These clouds start to build in as a Gulf low begins to push in from the southwest. This will a chance for rain during the day on Monday at a 30% chance. Ample cloud cover will block out that warming sunshine causing temperatures to struggle to get into the 70s. Overnight into Tuesday temperatures drop back into the low 50s.

Tuesday is expected to be pretty similar to Monday. The greater chances for rain start to build in Wednesday through the evening hours overnight into the day on Thursday. This could still change as multiple factors have to come together for the rain chances through the latter half of the week.
