The National Weather Service has issued a FREEZE WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 2 AM TO 9 AM EDT THURSDAY for the entire area.
FROSTY COLD START
Lows are expected to dip to between 30 and 36 degrees which means several areas will be at or below freezing. Widespread frost is expected. This will result in effectively ending the growing season by damaging sensitive plants. You may want to bring in potted plants to keep from losing them.
Thursday and Friday the flow aloft will continue to pump in colder air. Sunshine will mix with clouds for Thursday and right now it looks as if we miss out on any shower activity. Highs will struggle to touch 50 on Thursday and do a bit better Friday despite the coldest morning forecasted of the week with lows at or below freezing. High pressure looks to build in Friday and clear our skies later in the afternoon and evening. It will also bring milder air for the week, although temps will still be running well below normal. It will be a cold morning Saturday with lows near freezing. With sunshine we should see highs reach the low to mid 50s by afternoon. We’ll do even better Sunday with a few more degrees but a quick moving system will bring in some clouds early Sunday, clearing as the system pulls away.
Monday will start out cold in the 30s but plenty of sunshine and a change in the weather pattern will allow for temps to get to the mid and upper 50s. Tuesday will be warmer with temperatures finally get back to near 60 under increasing clouds before the next front arrives late Tuesday into Wednesday bringing showers.
Bundle up folks!
