Those with plans for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day will certainly need the jacket as temperatures will struggle to reach the mid 40s this afternoon! Fortunately, we'll have plenty of sunshine and dry conditions to carry us through into the middle of the work week. Getting back to school and work tomorrow morning will be even colder as temperatures fall into the low-mid 20s and wind chills could be as low as the teens!
Expect these cold, dry, and clear conditions through the middle of the week before high pressure slides east and our next system moves in. This system will bring us our next shot at showers Thursday into Friday. We’ll dry out in time for the weekend!
