FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Plenty of sunshine with temperatures reaching mid 70s

(WAFF) - Temperatures aren't too far off from where we started Sunday and many are in the low-to-mid 40s. A few spots are in the 30s this morning, and patchy frost is possible there. We'll see plenty of sunshine this morning, and we should warm up quickly.

We'll be near 70° at lunchtime with highs pushing into the mid 70s. Winds could be breezy at times, out of the southwest at 5-15 mph. A weak cold front pushes through the Valley tonight. There may be a few additional clouds as the front passes, but no rain is expected.

Temperatures will drop into the low/mid 40s once again overnight. Tuesday will be another sunny afternoon, but it will be slightly cooler. Highs should stay in the mid-to-upper 60s with a northeast wind at 5-10 mph.

Clouds will increase Wednesday as a stronger storm system takes shape to our west. Highs will rebound into the lower 70s with a southerly wind. We should stay dry for most of the day, but by the late afternoon or evening scattered storms will develop.

Some storms could be strong with gusty winds, but widespread severe weather is not expected at this time. The heaviest rain moves in overnight, but should be leaving by Thursday morning. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds for the afternoon with highs staying in the mid 60s.

Cooler air continues arriving on Friday with highs closer to 60.  Lows will slip into the 30s overnight. Patchy frost can be expected, and some of our typically cooler spots may dip to near freezing. We'll see plenty of sun Saturday afternoon, but highs will continue to run below average in the low/mid 60s.

We face another chilly night with lows back into the 30s. Our weather begins feeling more spring-like as we start the next work week. Highs should be back into the lower 70s with lows closer to 50.
