The final push of wet weather moves through tonight, ending mainly before 2am with most locations adding a quarter to another half an inch of rain before the cold front cuts us off. Temperatures will fall as skies clear heading into Monday morning with lows in the upper 50s with some patchy fog possible.
As the skies clear out on our first day of Fall we will start to feel more like it with more comfortable dew points in the 50s, some sunshine and highs barely reaching the 70s. Add in a brisk breeze from the WNW and there will be a crispness to the air on the autumn equinox.
Tuesday will have a southwest wind to bump temperatures back into the mid-70s with more moisture in the air to make it feel a bit muggy and warmer again, especially in the sunshine. A cold front moves in late Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning to bring showers back into the forecast but it will also drop dew points and temperatures heading into Thursday when highs will only be in the 60s. Rain chances return for Friday and the weekend, keeping with our pattern of wet weekends we seem to have settled into.
