Tuesday will be mostly sunny and breezy as high pressure remains in control of the weather for the region.  The high temperature will be 39 in the city, upper 30s in the suburbs.  A gusty northwest wind will make it feel like the mid- to upper 20s over much of the area.

Wednesday will be partly sunny with a chance of scattered showers as a warm front will move through the region. Temperatures will be closer to average with a high of 45 in the city, mid-40s in the suburbs.

Thursday will be partly cloudy with milder temperatures as high pressure will move offshore into the Atlantic. Winds will shift to the southwest, bringing air from the Gulf of Mexico into the area.
