WEEKEND OUTLOOK

Changes arrive over the weekend. It’s start mild ahead of a strong cold front, which approaches by the afternoon Saturday, and triggers widespread showers. A few embedded thunder showers are possible too. Highs top out early in the 60s but with the front through by afternoon, the winds increase and shift to the northwest, which quickly brings in much chillier air. Lows plummet to the lower 30s by Sunday morning, and high temperatures are much cooler in the lower 40s for the second half of the weekend.  The breeze remains brisk too.

NEXT WEEK

We don’t stay chilly for long, as temperatures by Monday are back to near 50 degrees Monday with a few showers possible. Tuesday looks mainly dry with partly sunny skies.  Readings are back into the middle 50s.  Late evening showers are possible but the best threat is overnight into Wednesday.  Temperatures spike to the lower 60s ahead of a cold front.  Cooler air returns behind the front for the rest of the week.

Have a blessed day!
