Dry, cool fall weather to persist through mid-week
The weather will feature plenty of sunny days and starry nights through mid-week, however temperatures will generally remain below normal.
High pressure which delivered a fairly nice end to the weekend will drift southeast by Monday morning. A cold front will also approach the area from the northwest. However, with limited moisture just some passing clouds will accompany the front as well as a wind shift to the northwest.
The cold air will be lagging so temperatures will warm into the upper 50s to lower 60s under sunny skies. It will be the warmest day of the week.
The colder air will arrive Tuesday as Canadian high pressure settles in. High temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s with night lows in the 20s and 30s both Tuesday and Wednesday under mainly sunny skies.
Through the first half of the week the weather will cooperate for any area farmers who may need to get out in the fields and harvest or finish any work.
The weather is a little more uncertain heading into the weekend with timing and track of potential systems which could bring light rain chances from Thursday on. These will get better refined in the coming days, however temperatures look to remain below normal in the 50s.
