Cold air settles in tonight with the first widespread freeze

Forecast

Near-freezing morning lows right through the weekend!

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Chilly! Freeze Warning through Early Wednesday Morning. Lo 33. Winds: Light.

WEDNESDAY: Partly Cloudy, Breezy. Hi 52. Winds: NW 5-15 mph.

THURSDAY: AM Sun, PM Increasing Clouds. Hi 50.

A front is pushing through the Mid-state which will usher in our coldest air of the season thus far. Temperatures will quickly tumble into the 40s this evening, with overnight lows dropping into the low 30s. This will be our first freeze of the fall, and likely what ends our extended growing season. Bundle up in the morning!

The middle and end of the week will feature plenty of morning chill with daily morning temperatures in the low to mid 30s. Daytime highs will only be around 50 which is a good 7-9 degrees below average. Mainly dry weather is expected though as any lake effect rain/snow showers stay just to our northwest. It’s not out of the question that a few flakes make it to the mountains, but our first real snow isn’t in the cards just yet.

Earlier, we were watching a storm that would attempt to organize along the east coast by late this week, but the push of cool, dry air from Canada should be enough to keep this storm suppressed south and east of our region. So aside from an increase in clouds Thursday and then again Saturday, our weather should stay unaffected as high pressure remains nearby. The good news for those that hate the cold is that a warm-up is in store early next week with highs back into the low 60s by Monday.
