Thursday Morning: Unseasonably warm today; Much cooler tomorrow

Weather

The warmup has finally arrived, but it will be short-lived.

Today: Our warming trend will continue today, and it will be a pretty warm day. Highs will rise into the upper 60s, which is above average for this time of year. Skies will be sunny. Winds will be southwesterly at 10-15 mph, so it will be breezy at times. High near 68.

Tonight: A cold front will arrive tonight, but thanks to a lack of moisture, there won’t be rain associated with this front. We’re looking at a thin line of clouds, leading to mostly clear skies. Winds will shift to a northwesterly direction at 5-10 mph. This will help reinforce cold air tomorrow, but tonight, lows will be fairly average. Low near 41.

Extended: Following the cold front, Friday’s temperatures will be much cooler. Temperatures will drop back into the 50s, but at least it will be sunny. Saturday is when it will really start to feel chilly. Highs will only reach the mid 50s. We’ll begin a new warming trend on Sunday with highs in the mid to upper 50s. We’ll see a few more clouds, but it will be sunny again on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Temperatures will be in the low 60s, which is exactly where our highs should be during this time of year. There is a slim chance of isolated showers on Tuesday ahead of our next system. Wednesday will be a better chance for scattered showers.
