40s Before the Freeze

Updated: 2019-12-07 23:36:21-05

We flirted with the 40s today with some sunshine but a brisk southwest wind added a bit more chill to the air, however that will keep our temperatures mild tonight with lows hovering near the freezing mark under a partly cloudy sky. The clouds continue to roll in for Sunday so don't expect as much sun though it will be warmer with a touch less wind as highs climb into the lower 40s.

A few sprinkles or light rain showers are possible in the afternoon but the main rain doesn't arrive until Monday morning with highs near 40 degrees early, falling quickly as a cold front swings through, pulling colder air in from the north and changing any rain shower over to a snow shower. This isn't a big snow system for us with most spots picking up less than an inch of snow which will be hard to measure as many of the snowflakes will be melting on the wet ground from the rain. This storm system will bring a drastic change in the temperatures with lows falling into the upper teens for Tuesday morning. As skies clear, the mercury will barely hit the 20 degree mark on Tuesday afternoon and it will feel colder than that when you add in the wind.

Wednesday morning will be the coldest with lows in the single digits under a clear sky but that means sunshine for the day, though that won't help warm us up: highs will be in the low teens. A warm front arrives on Thursday to increase the temperatures into the mid-20s and touch off a few flurries with 30s ahead for Friday and beyond.
