A Freeze Watch is in effect for parts of the area late Sunday night into early Monday morning.

Tracking chilly, breezy weather….As we move through our Sunday, get ready for quite a chill. We’re expecting high temperatures in the mid 50s by afternoon, courtesy of high pressure building in from the west.  Breezy northwest winds will make it feel colder, though, so keep that in mind. We’ll see mostly sunny skies by day. Skies will become mostly clear overnight.  Then, our temperatures will take a big dip late Sunday night into early Monday morning, falling into the low and mid 30s inland — cold enough for patchy frost.  A Freeze Watch has been issued for parts of the viewing area late Sunday night as a result.  Several communities closer to the water will also dip into the upper 30s.  By Monday afternoon, highs will only climb into the mid 50s under mostly sunny skies. On Tuesday, morning temperatures will drop into the 30s again, but by afternoon, we’ll be in the mid 60s. On Wednesday and Thursday, highs will be in the 70s.

Saturday Night: Mostly Clear. Chilly. Overnight low temperatures in the upper 30s inland; low to mid 40s closer to the coast. Winds: NW 10-15 mph.

Sunday: Mostly Sunny. Chilly and Breezy. High temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: NW 10-15 mph.

Monday: Mostly Sunny. Chilly. High temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: N 5- 15 mph.
