From temps in the 80s to the 40s and 50s….Wow!  What a difference a day makes. We’ve gone from temperatures in the 80s to temperatures a bit closer to normal for this time of the year.  In fact, we’re expecting highs in the 40s and 50s this week.

As we move through our Monday evening, expect cool and breezy conditions. Evening temperatures will be in the mid 40s. Our winds will make it feel cooler though. Winds will blow in from the northwest between 10 and 15 mph. The winds will relax a bit later tonight. Otherwise, we’ll see mostly clear skies tonight with low temperatures in the mid 30s.

Tuesday, on Valentine’s Day, high temperatures will be in the low and mid 50s. We’ll start the day with some sun, but clouds will quickly roll in all ahead of our next cold front. If we see any rain Tuesday, it will likely happen very late on Tuesday night, so most of the day will be dry.

By the time Wednesday rolls around, have your rain gear handy. A cold front will sweep through the area, giving way to showers. High temperatures will be in the mid 50s. Highs will cool into the upper 40s by Thursday and Friday. Then, we’ll see temperatures warming up for the weekend.

Tonight: Mostly Clear and Cold. Lows in the mid 30s. Winds: NW 5-15 mph.

Valentine’s Day: Clouds and Sun. A Little Breezy. Highs in the low to mid 50s. Winds: W/SW 5-15 mph.

Wednesday: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers (80%). Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.
