Clouds and shower chances will ramp up in the days ahead as the slow moving front edges eastward.  It will still be mild Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the upper 60's to low 70's.  The best chance of widespread rain will be late Thursday and early Friday.  Afternoon highs will fall into low 60's by Thursday and low 50's on Friday.
