The mild temperatures that this area has been experiencing during the last several afternoons will soon come to an end.  Forecasters from the National Weather Service predict that highs will be in the mid 60s for the next couple of days; tonight’s low is expected to be in the upper 50s. Showers on Tuesday will be followed by a cool down – daytime highs at the end of the week are anticipated to hover around the low 40s to upper 50s with overnight lows to dip into the 30s on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and down into the mid 20s by the end of the week.  A slight chance of rain and snow showers is even the forecast for Friday.
