Published On: Apr 18 2016 12:00:00 AM EDT   Updated On: Apr 18 2016 04:23:22 AM EDT

Here's a quick look at your local forecast.

The week ahead will feel more like mid-June than April with high temperatures in the 80s to start the week.

Monday-Tuesday:  Highs reach the low to mid 80s on Monday and Tuesday with abundant sunshine. A backdoor cold front will move through the region late Tuesday bringing a little more cloud cover and a breeze. Not expecting much moisture during this frontal passage will just notice clouds and slightly cooler air slide in by Wednesday.

Wednesday - Thursday: A blend of sun and clouds expected through the middle of the week with highs just above normal in the low to mid 70s. It will feel refreshing after the 80s for the start of the week! A cold front will approach the region late Thursday. Can't rule out a stray shower or thunderstorm across the mountains Thursday evening while the majority of the activity moves in Friday.

Friday: Much needed rain returns Friday along a cold front. Scattered thunderstorms are also possible along the boundary and afternoon temperatures remain in the middle 70s. The front moves out for the weekend and delivers beautiful conditions for Saturday and Sunday.
