EVENING: Clear, temps in the 60s.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear, cool. Low 38.
TUESDAY: Mostly sunny and milder. High 72.
The week started off chilly Monday morning with some areas reporting a frost and others reporting a freeze. We bounced back Monday afternoon with highs in the upper 60s.
Tonight will be clear and some areas will drop into the upper 30s. The chance for a heavy frost or freeze is low. We’re back to the sunshine for Tuesday with afternoon temperatures in the 70s.
It’s been a dry start to the year. In fact, 2023 is the 6th driest year on record so far…and it doesn’t look like we’ll see a drop of rain through at least Friday. There is the chance for a stray shower late Saturday, but even that looks iffy at this point. A better chance for showers could come next Sunday as a cold front crosses the region…with cooler air to follow. Any rain chances beyond a few days out should be taken with a grain of salt, however. A warm and dry pattern is shaping up and that sometimes begets more warm and dry weather — so stay tuned! We’ll keep you posted.
