During the rest of the day on Monday, temperatures will only rise in the low to mid 30s with mostly cloudy to cloudy conditions across the area. This is due to an area of high pressure that is situated northwest of the area, allowing for that colder air to come into the area and allow for some moisture to come into the area, thus bringing clouds in the region.
