Cooler conditions remain in place today, but this pattern won’t last very long as we’re already tracking a nice warm-up for the weekend.
With an extremely dry air mass in place this evening and clear skies, we’re likely going to see a rapid fall in temperatures before south winds kick in later tonight. This will allow lows to settle into the lower 20s and perhaps even a few upper teens tonight.
That south wind along with some periods of sunshine on Saturday will help push our temperatures back above average for early December. All-in-all not a bad weekend with highs in the middle 40s for Saturday followed by lower 50s for Sunday.
Rain chances for Sunday itself continue to be delayed, now holding off until well after dark. While we may not have much sunshine for the daytime hours, it will still be quite warm.
Rain will mix with snow at times on Monday as we reach our highs early in the day around 50 degrees. By the afternoon a cold front will sweep through giving us another rapid temperature drop allowing for a few of those snow showers. As of right now, no accumulation is expected, but winds will once again pick up by the afternoon and evening.
The stronger surge of cold is still on track for Tuesday into Wednesday. That’s when temperatures won’t leave the 20s despite some sunshine. Winds will also be quite gusty at times, pushing wind chills into the single digits both above and below zero!
