PM Update: Mild air departing behind cold front
At least several days of chilly sunshine ahead
A cold front moving through the area is putting an end to our brief mild spell. After a fairly cloudy and warm start, most spots were able to climb to highs in the mid-and-upper 50s. Cooler air is beginning to re-enter the region and winds are kicking up from the northwest, which will eventually help make things feel even chillier as we progress through the night and into tomorrow.
Through Tonight: Under clearing skies, cold air filters back into the area on a sometimes gusty northwest wind. Lows should drop to the upper 20s and lower 30s. Winds up to about 15 or 20 mph at times.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Lots of sun is expected on Wednesday, along with a continued northwest breeze and cold dry air. Highs should reach near 40 into the lower 40s most spots -- maybe a few mid 40s mixed in. Winds will tend to decrease late in the day, teeing us up for another cold night.
Weather disasters: Natural disasters hit a decade low this year according to the U.N. International Strategy for Disaster Reduction. But, of the 245 disasters noted this year, 224 (about 91%) were attributed to the weather. Weather-related natural disasters caused around 7,000 deaths and resulted in nearly $15 billion (U.S.) in damages.
