A cold front passed through the Mid-state this morning which has ushered in strong winds and much colder air for tonight. Winds this evening could occasionally gust over 40 mph as temperatures fall into the 30s. Overnight lows will drop into the low 20s as winds stay strong through Tuesday morning, which will drop wind chills into the single digits. Expect lots of sunshine for Tuesday, but it will be cold and breezy with highs around 40 degrees. Milder air quickly returns for Wednesday and that is the pick of the week with highs in the low 40s under mostly sunny skies.
For the end of the week, the trend has been for an upper level low to slow down and spin over the Northeast, which will keep us seasonably cool and on the breezy side. This type of pattern will keep any Gulf storms suppressed south though, which means we stay dry! Highs next weekend will be a few ticks below normal with chilly overnight lows in the upper 20s.
