    After days of unsettled weather, pleasant weather is ahead for the upcoming week.

    Monday will be a transition day, with the maritime influence gradually decreasing, according to the National Weather Service.

    There will likely be more clouds than sun in coastal areas, and temperatures will rise to the lower 60s. A northeasterly breeze will continue, although lighter around 20 miles per hour with gusts possibly up to 30 miles per hour. 

    The big improvement comes on Tuesday, featuring mostly sunny skies and high temperatures around 70. Northeasterly winds will decrease to between 10 and 15 miles per hour, turning toward a westerly direction late in the day. 

    On Wednesday, a westerly wind will dominate, helping to calm the ocean. Mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures will persist through Thursday.

    By Friday, forecasters expect more clouds, but temperatures will remain mild. Current modeling indicates a cold front passing through the area during the late Friday/early Saturday timeframe.
