The brief, scattered showers we experienced on Saturday will give way to a mostly sunny Sunday.

Sunday looks to be partly cloudy to mostly sunny with daytime temperatures near 70 degrees and northwest winds up to 10 mph.

Monday night, winds pick up with a chance of showers that could linger through Wednesday evening. Rainfall amounts between 0.25 and 0.75 of an inch is possible.
