Weather: mid-week cold front will bring thunderstorms, cooler temps

Temperatures will swing from above average to about ten degrees below normal this week.

Monday will start warm, with highs in the mid-70s and mostly sunny skies. Tuesday will be similarly pleasant, with a chance of fog in the morning and a few more clouds in the afternoon, Bay news 9 Meteorologist Josh Linker said.

"Wednesday a cold front is going to come through with some showers and thunderstorms," Linker said.

That cold front will drop temperatures just a few degrees Wednesday, but will likely bring wind and push overnight temperatures about 10 degrees below the night before, into the mid-50s.

On Thursday, the wind will linger but sunshine will return, and high temperatures will only reach the mid-60s. That's about ten degrees below the seasonal average, Linker said. Overnight lows on Thursday could dip into the 40s.

But by Friday, the wind will be gone and sunshine should return in full force. Friday's highs will reach the 70s.

For some perspective, here's a list of highs and lows from around the country this week:

Atlanta: high 75 degrees, low 30 degrees

New York: high 56 degrees, low 20 degrees

Minneapolis: high 50 degrees, low 18 degrees

Seattle: high 58 degrees, low 43 degrees

San Diego: high 75 degrees, low 54 degrees
