Northerly winds behind Sunday's cold front are ushering in a cooler and drier air mass. This more comfortable air mass will be sticking around through the workweek. The drier air equals lower humidity, but unfortunately it also means our dry spell will continue. Drought conditions will likely worsen.

After that cold front  temperatures will dip into the 40s and 50s over the next few days. High pressure just to our north is clearing out all that cold coverage. Any heat that reaches the surface of the next few days will be able to escape the surface due to these clear nights.
