Forecast: The Sun Grows Cold
By Brian Jackson
Cold is the word into the middle of next week unfortunately (unless you happen to like it) as our high temperatures steadily decline. Most of the time, you won't know it looking out the window as the majority of the forecast calls for at least partly sunny conditions. Maybe we squeeze out a rain shower or snow flurry late Monday.
Much cooler and windy. 49-52. Our weather will feel downright blustery today in the wake of the strong cold front that passed through yesterday afternoon. Skies will be turning mostly sunny, but it won't help too much as the wind will be whipping from the west-northwest at 15-25 mph with higher gusts. Afternoon highs will only make it to the low 50s.
During the evening and overnight, we'll have mostly clear conditions with some more clouds moving in during the early morning hours as a reinforcing shot of cold air approaches. Winds will diminish overnight to around 5-10 mph out of the west. Lows will drop down to 30-35 (suburbs-city).

Partly sunny, 47-50. Just to drive the point home, another cold front, though this one weaker than yesterday's, approaches the area on Monday. This passage will more than likely be a dry one, but it will generate scattered cloudiness. Temperatures continue their downward spiral as most areas will struggle to make it out of the mid-to-upper 40s. While those on the western slopes of the mountains will be seeing periodic flurries and snow showers due to upslope flow, most of us east of the mountains will stay dry. Somebody, somewhere in the metro area could see a rain shower or snow flurry but it's somewhat of a long shot.
Monday night will start off mostly cloudy with a sprinkle or snow flurry possible followed by partial clearing later at night. It will be cold with lows from the upper 20s in the suburbs to the low 30s downtown.
Tuesday sees the cold air really begin to take control. Skies will be partly sunny but what sun we have won't do much to warm your face and hands while outside. Our highs will only reach the mid 40s. For the first time this fall, everyone -- including downtown -- should experience sub-freezing temperatures overnight. Confidence: Medium-High
On Wednesday there's still no relief in sight as we turn cooler still. We'll again see plenty of sun, but our highs will stay cool, in the lower 40s, and some may not make it out of the 30s. Confidence: Medium
