Temperatures started out in the middle-30s in some hill towns today, but many inland locations will come close to 70-degrees this afternoon!

Thin, high clouds will melt away to perfectly blue sky as the afternoon wears on.

Tomorrow is the warmest day in the next 7-days, with temperatures in the middle-70s inland! Lots of sunshine is expected.

A cold front sweeps across the state on Tuesday, bringing with it a few showers. It won't be a washout, but there will be more clouds than sunshine and some towns will have some rain drops.

The big story after Columbus Day is tumbling temperatures. Each day will be cooler than the previous day.

Wednesday and Thursday look dry, then there's another chance for showers on Friday.

Temperatures by the end of the week will struggle to reach the lower-50s! The first hard freeze of the season is possible next weekend.
