 The cold Canadian air mass that descended upon the Sunshine State this past weekend has begun to moderate with winds shifting to the east.  Mid and high level clouds across the region overnight will assist in keeping very cold temps at bay.  The clouds will continue for Monday and Tuesday, with some breaks of sunshine.  Highs for Monday will be in the mid 70's, and temps on Christmas Day will reach the upper 70's and low 80's for a few select southern locations.

Another front will move through the Bay area on Wednesday, bringing a 30% chance of showers throughout the day.  High pressure will quickly build back in behind the front, giving us cool and sunny weather on Thursday.
