Forecast: Windy and mild today, then chill arrives
FORECAST IN DETAIL
The welcome warmer weather is only staying for a short visit unfortunately as another fairly potent cold front sweeps through the area this morning. Initially, the cold air will lag behind the cold front so we see lingering 50s for highs today before the notably colder weather returns tonight and definitely for the rest of the work week. Some areas could even see upper 50s for highs today -- a welcome contrast to late last week and coming up later this week!
Today (Tuesday): Cloudy skies this morning giving way to variable sky conditions this afternoon. Look for highs in the mid-to-upper 50s throughout the area. Winds pick up this afternoon and could blow as high as 20-25 mph at times. There is a slight (10%) chance of a passing shower. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: We clear the skies tonight and temperatures head back to colder territory (lows in the upper 20s to low 30s). In addition, the wind chill will be a factor with breezes from the north around 10-15 mph making it feel like 20-25 at times. Confidence: High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Colder conditions with mostly sunny skies should be expected. Look for those high temperatures to range from the low-to-mid 40s. Breezy winds from the west and northwest (10-15 mph) are anticipated. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: Mostly clear and colder with lows in the 20s. Wind should finally shift to calmer levels. Confidence: Medium
Thursday and Friday are looking similar right now with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s and nighttime lows in the 20s. These are below-normal temperatures for this time of year. Skies should be partly to mostly sunny. Confidence: Medium
The weekend will probably remain mostly on the cold side and a couple disturbances could work through the area. As of right now (and this is subject to change as we get closer to the weekend) we are looking at a 20% chance of snow showers on Saturday increasing to 30% on Sunday. We're still keeping a close eye on the possibility of a coastal storm. Highs should be near 40 with lows in the 20s. Confidence: Low
