Drier air as moved in and gusty west-southwest winds will eventually diminish this evening. Colder air will follow tonight as temperatures drop to the mid and upper 40s. That is still above the average of 40 degrees but a second cold front with reinforcing cold air will drop in tomorrow night and our temperatures will take a big plunge overnight into the 30s. It will be a difficult climb through the 40s despite plenty of sunshine.
It will be cooler, yet more seasonal for Saturday with highs around 60 and you can expect the skies to become clouded up later in the day as another weak cold front comes in. It may trigger an isolated shower in the evening. Upper level trough anchors overhead with high pressure at the surface for the second half of the weekend and early next week.
Sunday high pressure will provide plenty of sunshine but temperatures will only reach near 50 with some areas remaining in the 40s. Winds will be quite gusty making it feel even colder and a bit raw.
The cooler than average airmass hangs around for Monday with lows below freezing and highs once again in the upper 40s. Tuesday we see the sunshine continue but a few clouds will drift in by afternoon, highs will be warmer in the low 50s.
Temperatures will start to climb to above seasonal averages by Wednesday with highs in the low 60s under partly cloudy skies. Our next chance for rain arrives on Thursday with the next frontal system arriving late. Highs will be mild in the low to mid 60s.
DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME
Saturday into Sunday don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour before heading to bed. Also, it is a good time to check your smoke detectors and the batteries in your carbon monoxide
