Today it is cold and windy, the warm-up starts tomorrow

We have a week ahead of us like spring!

Today: Partly cloudy, cold and windy. Hi 40. Winds: NW 10-20 mph, gusts to 25 mph.

Tonight: Mostly clear, cool. Lo 25. Wind: W 5-15 mph.

Monday: Sunny, milder trend. Hi 52. Wind: West 5-10 mph.

A minor front crossed the area last night and is bringing us a little taste of arctic air again this morning. Temperatures dropped into the low 20s almost everywhere with wind chills in the low teens. Get your packages today! The highs will only bounce back to near the 40 but most of the day will be spent in the 30’s. Sustained winds of 15 to 20 mph will continue through the afternoon, but strong winds will ease throughout the day.

We will see clear skies and calm winds tonight which will once again allow temperatures to drop into the 20s on Monday morning. The warm-up begins Monday afternoon with highs in the low 50s…on par with normal. Don’t forget… Spring officially starts at 5:24 PM on Monday!

We break 60 on Tuesday and are looking to remain quite mild for the rest of the week. The Ward system could bring us some light rain as early as Wednesday evening, but it looks like our best chance for rain this week will come onriday. We will be a little cooler early next weekend, but highs will still be at least 5 degrees above average.
