We’ve got one last cloudy, possibly wet day to pull through before sunshine returns on Tuesday, according to forecasters.

There is a 50 percent chance of showers on Monday, and the day could begin with patchy fog in some areas. The high should reach 65 degrees, with a low falling to about 51. The chance for showers will be about 20 percent Monday night, with the greatest chance for showers coming before 10 p.m.

Put the umbrellas and rain boots away by Tuesday morning. The day will be sunny and warm, with a high near 72 and a low around 53, according to the National Weather Service.

Wednesday should be just as sunny and even warmer, with a high near 77 and a low of about 58.

We may see some clouds move in mixed with sunshine for the remainder of the week, but no more rain. Highs should reach 75 on Thursday and near 78 on Friday, before dropping to about 73 on Saturday. Lows through the weekend should remain in the high to mid-50s.
