Discussion:
Rain and a few thunderstorms will be pushing east and out of the region gradually this morning, giving way to clearing conditions as we go into the afternoon. Sunshine should return by the early evening with somewhat cooler air moving in.   Lows could drop into the 30s Sunday night, but a lingering breeze and scattered clouds may keep it from getting overly cold.  Another cold front will push through Monday afternoon.  A few scattered showers are possible with it Monday and some may pop up Tuesday with an  upper level low pressure parked just to our east. Small chances for frost exist on Monday night behind the weak wave of energy. Blustery winds and sharply colder air will work in for Tuesday.  This should lead to a harder freeze Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.  A few snowflakes may be possible late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. It may stay unsettled and chilly late in the week into next weekend.  Frost/freeze likely Tuesday night through the weekend. Forecast confidence is moderate to high the next several days.
  **The  forecast low temperature is for vine level**
