As spring takes over, temperatures will be in the 50s this week and the sun will make appearances Tuesday and Friday. 

Rain, clouds and drizzle will dominate the mid week, howeverm according to the National Weather Service.

Monday's high of 60 degrees will drop to the low 40s Monday night and gusty winds of up to 23 mph will blow overnight, cooling things down even more.

Tuesday, it stays breezy with winds up to 15 mph, and sunny skies will dominate along with a high of close to 60 degrees, forecasters said.

Then, there's a good chance of rain Wednesday morning, returning Wednesday night, with clouds and later fog. Winds will ramp up again to about 25 mph Wednesday night, the weather service said, and there is a 90% chance the overnight rain will last all day Thursday with some patchy fog and a high of 53.

Thursday night, drizzle continues but overnight it should clear up and sunshine breaks through again Friday with a high of nearly 60.

Similar conditions should last through the weekend, although temperatures will cool down for Sunday and drop to below freezing Sunday night.
