An overnight cold front has the area set up for a rather chilly, dreary day.

Clouds will be thick throughout the morning hours. Spits of drizzle and the occasional light rain shower will be possible.

These conditions will be supplied by breezy northwest winds behind an area of low pressure passing by. Like yesterday, wind speeds of 10-15 mph and gusts of 30-35 mph will be possible.

Conditions will change little during the midday and early afternoon, though drizzle should become less common. Clouds will linger into the mid-afternoon as well before gradually breaking up. The day should end on a sunny note as high pressure builds in.

With the northwesterly flow and thick cloud cover much of the day, temperatures will be well below average. In fact, it will be tough to even make it to 60 degrees today and most places will probably end up just below.

Northwest winds will continue tonight, though will not be as blustery. Skies will remain clear throughout the night, helping temperatures to fall.

After an evening of temperatures dropping through the 50s, overnight lows should bottom out in the mid 40s.

Here is a look at the weather for the next few days:

Sunday: Mostly sunny. Morning lows in the mid 40s. Afternoon highs in the low 60s.

Monday: Morning sun, afternoon clouds. Morning lows in the mid 40s. Afternoon highs near 70.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, possibly with morning rain and thunder. Morning lows in the mid 50s. Afternoon highs in the mid 70s.

Wednesday: Sunny with a few clouds. Evening showers and storms possible. Morning lows in the upper 50s. Afternoon highs in the low 80s.
