Cold front passes through today contributing to the return of clouds and some rain showers. Shouldn’t be a ton of rain with this system, but enough to dampen the roads. Things will turn windy, as well, in the afternoon, with gusts near 30 mph after a calm, mild start to the day. Highs around 50. Noticeably cooler tomorrow and through the weekend.
