Consider Tuesday's sunshine one last hurrah before another cold front moves in.

The unseasonably warm temperatures reaching into the upper 60s on Tuesday are the last of the mild days for a while, said Craig Evanego, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Temperatures in the upper 60s on Tuesday will be close to the record high of 74 degrees in 1998, but will not quite break that record, Evanego said.

The mild air moving in from the southwest will be followed by a cold front settling in overnight Tuesday, he said.

"The cold front will come through tonight and bring us back down to reality for early December," said Evanego.

The overnight low of 46 will be accompanied by showers.

Skies will clear up on Wednesday with a high in the mid-50s, which is still above normal, but by Thursday temperatures will go back into the low 40s, Evanego said.

Thursday will be sunny but cool, he said.

It may be a damp weekend, with cloudy skies and a chance of showers on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, said Evanego. The high for Friday will be near 48 with an overnight low near 38.

Saturday and Sunday will have high temperatures in the low 50s.
