After our cool and wet weekend, a nicer week coming up. Each day gets sunnier and drier, chance of a few showers on Monday, less likely after that. Chances increase toward the end of the week again as we hit a summer type weather pattern. Holiday weekend should start nice, but a possible low coming up the coast could dampen Monday, maybe even cloudy by Sunday. Start of summer, wow, what a change after this cool May. Enjoy!
