Another mild day will be across the area on Tuesday before rainy and cooler weather arrives Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Highs will approach 70 F on Tuesday ahead of a cold front that will usher rain into the area Tuesday night. The evening rush will narrowly avoid the rain, but it will remain dry.

A cold front will push a period of rain into the area after 8 p.m. Tuesday. The rain will be short-lived with drier air already moving in shortly after midnight.

A gusty, northwest wind will develop on Wednesday ushering in noticeably cooler weather. Highs will reach the upper 50s. While normal for this time of the year, it will feel quite cool in wake of Tuesday's warmth.

A high pressure system will quickly settle back into the area Thursday, bringing plenty of sunshine and light winds.
