EVENING: Blustery and chilly. Northwest winds 10-20mph. Temps in the 40s.
TONIGHT: FREEZE WARNING. Low temperatures between 30-35 degrees. Northwest winds 10-20mph.
THURSDAY: Strongest winds, Northwest 15-25, gusts 45mph. Afternoon highs near 50 degrees.
Cold and blustery conditions last through this evening and tonight as cold air continues to drive southward. The winds will continue overnight which will prevent a freeze, however, a freeze for some locations will occur which will impact any frost or freeze sensitive plants. Placing potted plants indoors and/or covering outdoor cold-sensitive plants is recommended.
Thursday’s winds will pick up again with a reinforcing shot of cold air. Watch for wind gusts over 40 mph at times which will make it feel more like the 30s and 40s most of the day! While it will be partly cloudy, the winds and chill (highs only near 50°) won’t make for a pleasant day! Despite another chilly start, highs rebound on Friday with more sunshine back into the 60s. Temperatures do moderate slightly by the weekend, with our next best chance for rain coming Saturday night into Sunday morning. Conditions look to dry out and warm up as we head toward the beginning of next week. We have actually had Spring weather this year and it’s been enjoyable. That looks to continue even with a few bumps in the road like today and tomorrow.
