Discussion:
Cooler and less humid air will filter in today with northwest winds. Much of the rain and thunderstorm threat will be south of the region this morning, with any redevelopment holding south.  It should be clear Sunday night through early Tuesday with high pressure in control.  Our coolest low temperatures of the week will likely be tonight and Monday night when readings could reach the upper 30s to around 40 north, and low 40s south. We could stay a touch warmer on Monday night as high pressure begins to slide to the east, allowing warmer and more moist air to slide in.  The next front will push in by Tuesday evening into early Wednesday with some showers and thunderstorms possible.  We should clear off again later in the week after that with seasonal temperatures.  Forecast confidence is moderately high through Tuesday. Then moderate for Wednesday. High confidence for Thursday.   
Forecast:     **The  forecast low temperature is for vine level**
