As high pressure moves away from the region this morning, an area of low pressure will pass well to our north and drag a cold front through by this afternoon. The front will be accompanied by some showers and perhaps a thunderstorm. High pressure will briefly build in on Tuesday, before things turn unsettled into mid-week as yet another cold front passes south of the region and an area of low pressure will develop along the front and move northeast, possibly bringing the first snowfall of the season for some by the end of the week, particularly across the higher terrain.
