WEATHER REPORT: A RAINY WEEKEND AND A HARD FREEZE A-COMING
The temperatures for the week were mild to cool for this time of year. The high was Thursday afternoon’s 64°F and the low last Wednesday's 34°. There were sunny skies and clear nights leading up to the weekend, but then cool, cloudy and sometimes wet weather through Monday. Yesterday was mostly clear, but the high was only a chilly 48°.
Today will be mild and mostly cloudy with a high of 55°, but tomorrow is going to be cold, and weather warnings for the area have already been issued. We’re in for a hard freeze with temperatures dropping into the mid to low twenties at night along with enough north wind to drive the wind chill down into the teens. Forecasters are also giving us a chance to see our first snow of the year, although the snowfall is likely to be minimal, if at all, and not enough to create any serious travel hazards. Still, the high tomorrow will be only about 34°. Brrrrr!
Skies should clear and temperatures begin rising on Friday with mostly sunny skies and a high of 45°. That will go up to 60° on a windy Saturday and highs on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday should all be around 60° with lows in the thirties and forties.
