Tracking a big drop in our temps….After rainy conditions on our Tuesday, now our attention turns to some bitterly cold weather on the way.


As we move through our late Tuesday night, expect low clouds and areas of fog and drizzle as low pressure moves farther away from our area.  Low temperatures will be in the mid 40s.

On Wednesday, areas of fog will be possible in the morning. Then, we’ll see clouds and some sunshine. Most of the day will be dry with high temperatures in the mid 50s.


On Thursday, we’ll see a good deal of clouds and possibly a few showers as a strong cold front moves in from the west. The most noticeable change with this front will be our temperatures. Highs are expected in the low and mid 50s ahead of the front. Once the front sweeps through, highs will drop into the lower 40s by Friday!  Morning temperatures on Saturday will be in the 20s. Highs by Saturday afternoon will be in the low and mid 40s.



Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Areas of Fog and Drizzle (20%). Low temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: NW 10-15 mph.

Wednesday: Patchy AM Fog. More Clouds Than Sun. Cool. High temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.


Thursday: Partly/Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Showers (30%). High temperatures in the low and mid 50s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.
