FOX 5's Mike Thomas says high pressure building in from the west will bring us the cooler temperatures during the first half of the day Tuesday. A warmer and pleasant afternoon is shaping up with sunny skies and highs around 50 degrees.

A we move ahead in the week and toward the weekend, spring-like temperatures arrive bringing highs in the 60s on Thursday and into the 70s on Friday and Saturday. Keep an eye out for some showers on Sunday and cooler weather as we head into next week.
