TONIGHT: Clear & Cold, Patchy Frost (Frost Advisory in place). Lo 36. Winds: NE 5-15 mph.
THURSDAY: Patchy Frost, Sunny & Pleasant. Hi 68.
FRIDAY: Morning Sunshine, Increasing PM Clouds. Warmer. Hi 72.
A consistent breeze will continue through this evening, and we are hoping the winds keep kicking around tonight. With the sun, temperatures did high the middle and upper 60s despite the cold air. Without the sun tonight, we expect record chill with temperatures in the mid-30s likely.
There is concern that patchy areas could experience a frost and/or freeze near daybreak tomorrow morning. The current forecast low for tomorrow morning is 36°, and many cooler valleys could certainly drop below that! Plan ahead now and cover any plants in case frost would occur. This is a chilly airmass for mid-May, so get ready! Temperatures go back up to more seasonable levels by Friday and the weekend.
Our next chance for rain will come over the weekend. Saturday will likely feature a few showers along a cold front, but the rain doesn’t look like much. It will once again likely be less than 0.25″ for most backyards. Saturday also won’t be a washout, so we will continue to update the weekend forecast and try and pin down the timing for Saturday’s showers as we get closer. It will not be overly wet, however. Sunday looks drier and temperatures stay seasonable into next week.
