Lucky for all of you with the day off, the holiday is the week’s warmest. Yes, we’ll have lots in the way of clouds today, but they depart Tuesday morning. Then, clouds are few and far between for the remainder of the week. Temperatures Tuesday through Sunday are in keeping with mid-November, mainly in the 50s during the day with 30s at night.

Today (Monday): We awaken to low clouds and fog in many spots. It may take several hours for skies to brighten - probably until winds from the south kick in at around 10-15 mph to mix up the air a bit. During the afternoon, we may see brief intervals of sunshine, with highs in the mid-to-upper 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: We completely cloud over and rain showers develop after around 10 p.m. It’s mild until late at night when the cold front sweeps through, knocking temperatures into the mid-to-upper 40s by morning. Confidence: Medium-High
