Some unexpected cloud cover kept things a bit cooler than expected today. Those clouds should be just about gone by now, and that means temperatures will get the opportunity to drop below the freezing mark regionwide tonight.

Enjoy the sunshine and relatively mild temperatures Monday, because the rest of the week looks rather unsettled, with several chances for rain.
