Getting colder this week

Today is going to be almost exactly like yesterday: Cloudy with temps in the low to mid 20s. The wind will be from the west at about 5 to 15 mph today.

We will finally get a break from the clouds tomorrow. We’ll warm up a bit, too as highs climb back into the upper 20s to low 30s. That’s still slightly below average for this time of year, but quite a bit warmer than we have been the past several days.

There will be plenty of sunshine through the rest of the week and the weekend, but a blast of cold, Arctic air is going to take our temperatures down. On Thursday, high temps will only reach the mid teens with lows dropping to or even a little below zero by Friday morning. Temperatures will hit rock bottom on Friday morning, then we will gradually work our way back into the 20s through the weekend.

Our long-range models are hinting that we will stay dry with a bit of a warming trend by early to mid next week. There are no signs of snow through at least the middle of next week. Of course, that can always change. If it does, I’ll let you know.
