MAIN POINTS:
- Highs rising to the 60s midweek
- Rain is on the way
- Back to reality next weekend

Monday Night is pretty quiet. Mostly clear. Lows drop to the upper 20s and lower 30s.

Geminid Meteor Shower- Geminid meteor shower will peak overnight Monday into Tuesday morning.
NASA considers it the best annual meteor shower for stargazers to see. You can see these meteors anywhere in the world, but viewing is best for the northern hemisphere. Mostly clear conditions will be good for viewing, however the moon also plays a big part. According to NASA, the moon "washes out" fainter meteors. The moon is almost 80% full, which is not ideal for meteor viewing. That bright moon is expected to set around 2 AM, leaving a few hours for meteor watching until twilight.

How to observe Geminids-
According to NASA, the best way to view Geminids is by lying on your back, away from lights, and looking up towards the sky. It will help if you let your eyes get adjusted to the dark, which NASA says can take up to 30 minutes.

Tuesday warms to the mid 50s with clouds increasing. There's a chance to see a few showers Tuesday night into Wednesday. Lows will only drop to the low to mid 40s.

Midweek rain arrives for Wednesday but mainly for Thursday. Temperatures for both of these days will rise to the low 60s! After that rain, temperatures fall back to the 40s and 50s leading into the weekend.
