It will be dry and still somewhat mild today with gradual clearing skies. The clouds will begin to clear later in the morning but still the skies will remain with more clouds and sun today. Temperatures in the lower 70s make for another mild day in the region.

There is another chance then for showers overnight Thursday into Friday with another cold front. With that front bringing rain chances, it will also bring a cooldown to more seasonable weather by the weekend. That means temperatures returning into the 60s for high temperatures overall and overnight lows approaching 40 degrees in many locales.

A cooldown is expected by this weekend with highs in the 60s Friday and the lower 60s by...
