THIS EVENING: Clearing skies, breezy and cold. Temps dropping near 40 degrees.
TONIGHT: Mostly Clear & Cold. Lo 35. Winds: W 5-15 mph.
FRIDAY: Mostly Sunny, Still Breezy. Hi 65. Winds: W 5-15 mph.
A freeze did occur this morning as the cold air and strong winds have taken over our weather. The coldest locations dropped to the upper 20s this morning. High temperatures did eventually climb close to 50°, but many times it felt like the 30s today when the wind was factored in. The consistent westerly winds will continue to strongly blow this evening before relaxing a little overnight. Temperatures will drop to the 30s for most locations with a FREEZE WARNING again in place tonight through Friday morning. Remember to protect any cold-sensitive plants that are outside!
High temperatures do rise over the next several days through the middle of next week. Tomorrow afternoon should feel warmer with temperatures rising to the low and mid-60s. While Friday provides more sunshine, clouds do increase for Saturday. Showers should off until the evening, with steady rain then likely through Sunday morning. Fortunately we do expect the rain to move on quickly Sunday and most places should see drier weather as early as 8-10 AM. Total rain will average near 0.50″.
More sunshine then should break out through the clouds for Sunday afternoon. If the projected pattern holds, sunny weather could then last through next Wednesday with highs approaching the low 80s by Wednesday-Thursday!
