Much colder weather is on the way….Brace yourself! We’re tracking some very cold weather by Friday into the first half of the weekend.

As we move through our Wednesday afternoon, we’re expecting mild conditions. Highs will be in the mid 50s under a mix of sun and clouds. Tonight, our temperatures will dip into the upper 30s and lower 40s under partly cloudy skies.

On Thursday, a cold front will move through the area, giving way to a good deal of clouds and a quick shot of showers. Our forecast models are hinting at some of that rain moving in by late morning into the afternoon before it quickly moves offshore. High temperatures on Thursday will be in the low and mid 50s.

By Friday, though, you’ll notice a considerable difference with our high temperatures. In fact, highs will only reach the low and mid 40s! We’ll see plenty of sun on Friday. By early Saturday morning, we’ll wake up to temperatures in the upper 20s. Highs will reach the low and mid 40s Saturday afternoon. Bundle up!

We’ll wake up to temperatures near 30 degrees on Sunday morning. Highs will climb into the lower 50s by afternoon under partly cloudy skies. Then, a little more rain moves in by Monday.

This Afternoon: Sun and Clouds. Breezy at Times. Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: NW/N 5-15 mph.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy and Chilly. Lows in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Winds: N/NE 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers Possible (30%). Highs in the low and mid 50s. Winds: E/N/NW 5-10 mph.

Friday: Mostly Sunny. Bitterly Cold. High temperatures in the lower 40s. Winds: NW 5-10 mph.
