An active weather pattern prevails this week as upper-level-low pressure systems spin out from the jet stream. It will seem that we will be dry, then wet, then wet some more, then dry for a day, and then wet again throughout the period. We'll start off warm and in the 60's/70's during the first half of the week, but cold temperatures will return during the early hours on Friday. All images courtesy of Wright-Weather.com
