Friday Morning: Cool weekend; Much warmer next week

Weather

It will be on the cooler side today, but the cold will really kick in tonight.

Today: It will be much cooler today following this morning’s cold front. Temperatures will rise into the upper 50s. It will be sunny, but it also will be breezy with winds out of the west-northwest at 10-15 mph. Gusts could exceed 20 mph. High near 58. 

Tonight: Skies will be clear, which will aid in temperatures quickly dropping into the low to mid 30s. Temperatures are forecast to be above freezing; however, some locations could fall to or below 32. Widespread frost is likely. Winds will be westerly at 5-10 mph. Low near 34. 

Extended: Saturday will be even cooler with temperatures in the mid 50s. Sunday will begin a warming trend, but temperatures will still sit in the 50s. Throughout the weekend, we’ll see plenty of sunshine, and we’ll start the workweek with lots of sunshine as well. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day will feature fairly average temperatures. Highs will be in the lower 60s. Then, we’ll be unseasonably warm on Tuesday with temperatures rising into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Wednesday and Thursday will both be very warm days, but we could see isolated showers. There is model disagreement on when our next front will arrive, and that will dictate when we see the best chance for rain next week. Make sure to follow along for updates.
