After a warm day today, temperatures are expected to start cooling, and scattered showers are expected to fall, throughout the week, forecasters said.

Today will start out partly sunny, with high temperatures in the upper 70s, cooler along the coast. Skies should become mostly cloudy in the afternoon, with showers possible after 3 p.m. Rain could continue into the evening as low temperatures drop into the low 60s.

“This afternoon and tonight we could see showers, but by no means will it be a washout,” Simpson said.

Mostly cloudy skies will persist Tuesday, with high temperatures in the low to mid-70s. Some showers and thunderstorms are possible after 10 a.m. Skies will stay cloudy through the afternoon, and low temperatures should sink to around 60 degrees overnight.

The sun should reappear Wednesday, though high temperatures will crest in the high 60s and low 70s. Rain showers are possible after 3 p.m., with clouds rolling in during the afternoon. Low temperatures should drop to the mid- to high 50s.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy, with high temperatures in the high 60s and low to mid-70s. Cloudy skies will appear during the evening, along with a chance of showers. Low temperatures should drop into the lower 60s overnight.

The week will likely end on a cloudy, wet note, with off-and-on showers possible throughout the day. High temperatures should crest in the 70s before dropping to the low 60s overnight.
