Cold and Cloudy Start to the Week

The week will end with warmer temperatures than what we will be starting the week with. A high-pressure system is the main reason for the clearing up of rain and clouds by mid-week.

Likely shower & storm chances today; wind advisory through 6am Friday. Colder temperatures set to follow this weekend.Details in this morning's Final Finish weather update:
