More warmer weather is forecast for Monday following the warmup on Sunday.
The National Weather Service is calling for sunny skies with a temperature to reach 78 across the metro-east.
Skies will remain clear this evening with an anticipated low of 47.
A cooling trend will follow, however; highs are expected to reach only into the mid- or low-50s Tuesday through Thursdays, with a slight chance of rain Wednesday and Thursday before the mercury rebounds into the 60s on Friday.
