Taste of Cooler weather coming late week

Discussion: Temperatures rise back to around 80 with a brief uptick in humidity ahead of a cold front passage tomorrow.  Some minimal shower activity and some briefly enhanced cloud cover tomorrow afternoon and evening will follow a mostly sunny morning. Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be cool as high pressure brings sunshine and a taste of fall. The mornings will feature low temperatures in the 50’s and afternoon highs will top out in the low 70’s. It will be a bit warmer Sunday ahead of another cold front passage, but once again only minor shower activity is expected with the frontal passage Sunday night into Monday.
