A cold front pushing south through the state has left us 15-20° cooler today than we were yesterday and has continued to allow for scattered showers across the area. Temperatures tonight will fall into the upper 40s before recovering into the mid 60s by Friday afternoon. Gloomy conditions are expected to wrap up the work week with a few showers possible. Our next cold front is set to move through the area Saturday, which will bring us the likelihood of rain and the possibility of a few rumbles of thunder. Our highs in the low 70s will QUICKLY drop into the 30s by Sunday morning!
The second half of the 7-day forecast is looking much drier, including Sunday, but much colder as well. Highs will only be able to top out in the 40s and 50s through the middle of next week, with morning lows dropping as far down as the low 20s at points in the upcoming work week! Be sure to prepare for this big drop in temperature as it will be much different from the near 80° temperatures experienced this week.
