The normal average high is 60 degrees, Hoffman said.

A cold front moving through Tuesday night brings a chance of yet more showers, mainly after midnight, with temperatures in the low 50s, the National Weather Service said. 

Wednesday is expected to be mostly sunny and remain warmer than normal, with a high near 68 degrees and a low around 47, forecasters said.
