Temperatures dropping to the mid-40s tonight for a cooler start to the work week

Forecast

Another brief warm-up coming by mid-week...

TONIGHT: Cool & Breezy. Lo 47. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

MONDAY: Breezy & Cooler. Hi 62. Winds: NW 10-15 mph.

TUESDAY: Mostly Sunny, Milder. Hi 69.

Today was finally more like fall! We have certainly had some cooler mornings over the past few months, but in general mild air has won out. Today brought high temperatures only in the low 60s and a strong northwest wind. This drier air certainly makes the air feel chilly, but we will adjust as we see more opportunities for these cool shots of air over the coming weeks. Some of the clouds rolling through this afternoon did provide a few instability showers, but rain amounts have been light.

Tonight will be cool but seasonable with lows dropping into the mid to upper 40s. Monday will be a similar day to today as we remain under the influence of a trough. Tuesday morning will likely be our coolest start so far this season with temperatures expected to drop into the low to mid 40s.

As ridging begins to take control over the east coast again, temperatures will respond and therefore another stretch of milder than average weather is expected by mid-week. It won’t be anything like this past week though and it’ll be short lived as another cool shot of air will come next weekend. Before that happens, highs should rebound into the low 70s for Wednesday and Thursday. Scattered showers are expected by Thursday evening as the front crosses, with just a lingering stray shower possible into Friday.
