The current run of beautiful weather will continue well into the week, with mild temperatures and only a slight chance of rain.

Then, after a weak cold front rolls through the region, the nice weather will hang around a bit longer, according to the National Weather Service.

Monday will be partly cloudy with highs in the lower 80s and lows in the 50s, according to meteorologist Matt Ziburo.

Tuesday will be much the same, he said, with lows inching up to the 60s, and the highs in the 80s. Wednesday will be a repeat, he said.

On Thursday, a cold front starts to creep in, and the rain chance will be around 20 percent. The front will sweep through on Friday with the chance of rain increasing to 30 percent, while temperatures stay in the 60s and 80s.

The mild front will give way to only slightly lower temperatures as the weekend arrives, he said. The chance of rain slips back to around 20 percent over the weekend, he said.

All in all, it will be perfect weather to enjoy before the heat of the summer comes calling.

“Spring is here,'' Ziburo said.
