Showers Today, Arctic Cold Blast by Next Week


Showers roll in today and move out by tonight.  We’ll be briefly chilly on Friday but have a nice weekend before our true arctic front rolls in.

TODAY: Showers will roll in during the day Thursday and last likely into Thursday Night.  Clouds will then begin decrease late Thursday Night.  Highs will be in the low to middle 60s to the south and east, with some upper 50s to the north and west.  Temperatures will begin to slowly decrease as the front passes on through.  Winds start out of the south but shift to the north and west, perhaps being as breezy as 10-20 mph at times.  Rainfall amounts look light, ranging for most of us between 0.25″ and 0.50″, with some folks seeing less than that.

TONIGHT: Lows tonight fall into the mid to upper 30s with showers ending early and clouds beginning to slowly clear out.  Expect wind chills into the 20s by Friday morning.

FRIDAY: Cooler weather behind the front means we’ll only see highs in the upper 40s and low 50s.  Look for decreasing clouds and north winds through the day.  Friday Night lows fall into the upper 20s and low 30s.

THIS WEEKEND: We’ll see more sunshine and cooler weather with highs in the 50s and 60s.  Lows at night are in the 30s and 40s.

NEXT WEEK: Another cold front looks to settle in by Monday and Tuesday.  We’ll likely see some showers along and just behind the front.  As the front passes by, moisture will still be present, but on it’s way out.  In addition, cold air is anticipated to rush in quickly behind the front.  It is possible that some remnant moisture meeting with the cold air will allow for a few areas to see a couple of flakes, though no accumulation and no impacts will occur.  There is high confidence, however that the front brings arctic air into the region.  Highs by Tuesday struggle to reach the 40s and lows at night are down in the 20s.  Tuesday and Wednesday morning, wind chills are in the teens.
