Temperatures will only be cooling down from here! As high pressure builds in behind this morning’s disturbance, we’ll notice windy & cooler conditions working in through the rest of our Wednesday. Clouds will also be gradually decreasing in coverage in this time. Although we’ve started the day well into the 50s, by the evening hours, the low 50s and 40s will be back in the forecast.

Anticipate freezing temperatures walking out the door tomorrow morning, which will definitely be noticeable after starting the week with highs near 80°! Highs will only reach the upper 40s and lower 50s Thursday afternoon, even despite lots of sunshine. Another freezing start will follow for Friday, before we start our climb in temperatures as we approach the weekend.

Highs will reach the 60s both Saturday and Sunday, but this weekend will also bring us our next chance for shower activity. Another low pressure system will lift a warm front through the region Saturday & a cold front through on Sunday. This will allow for rain chances from Saturday evening through Sunday morning. Fortunately, severe weather isn’t anticipated at this time!

We’ll dry back out and return to normal as we start off the upcoming work week.
