The First Warning Storm Team is tracking record-challenging warmth today!

A mostly dry, and very warm day on tap. There is a strong cold front that will approach and cross the region. There isn’t a whole lot of moisture associated with this system, but we’re keeping a 20 percent chance for a brief shower. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies with record-challenging highs. Most of us will see highs in the mid 70s. Winds will start to pick up out of the southwest around 10-20 mph. This will help temperatures to warm. Once the front passes, winds will switch to the northwest. This will bring in some colder air. Expect temperatures Sunday night to drop to the low 40s.

Much colder temperatures to start the work week. Highs Monday in the upper 40s to low 50s. Brisk winds out of the northwest, will make temperatures feel much colder. We could see gusts anywhere from 30-40 mph. Temperatures remain in the 50s for Tuesday and Wednesday. A chance for showers on Wednesday. Temperatures drop into the 40s on Thursday and Friday.

Sunday: Partly cloudy. A passing shower possible (20%). Record-challenging highs in the mid 70s for most. Becoming breezy. Winds: SW 10-20+ mph.

Sunday night: A slight chance for a shower (25%). Partly cloudy. Lows in the lower 40s. Breezy. Winds: NW 15-20+ mph.

Monday: Sunny, windy and colder. Highs in the lower 50s. Winds NW 15-25 with gusts 30-40 mph.
