Chilly temperatures will continue today, but with a brief warm up on Saturday into the upper 40s before a coastal low moves through on Sunday, producing widespread moderate to heavy rain with up to an inch expected. This system will then be followed by a very cold air mass as temperatures struggle to reach 30 degrees for highs through the majority of the week (Image credit: NCEP MAG).
