That trend will continue through the midweek as temperatures will be at or above the average high temperature of 64 degrees.

This warmth will have a catch of course, as moisture moves into the region.

As we head into Wednesday, things will be warm, breezy, and partly sunny for much of the day before showers and strong storms move in around and after sunset.

Strong wind gusts as well as minor flooding and heavy rain are possible as showers weaken into Thursday.
