Temperatures for most are in the 40s, but some could touch 50 degrees. The overnight period continues to dry, but sprinkles and flurries are possible through the night. Temperatures fall into the middle to upper 30s. Tuesday is chilly and partly sunny to mostly cloudy. A few showers are still possible. Expect highs in the middle to upper 40s.
