Wednesday Night: Record high temperatures possible through Saturday; First freeze of the season Sunday night

Weather

Tonight: Passing showers overnight. Morning temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s.  

Thursday: Rain chances will be lower, but a couple of stronger storms will be possible early in the day. The Marginal Risk is currently to our east. Highs in the lower 80s. 

New Year’s Eve: Only a few storms with highs near 82°. We should be mostly dry by midnight, but it will be super warm and humid.  

New Year’s Day: A strong cold front will move in and storms are likely during the second half of the day and Saturday night. We will need to watch for strong storms again, but as of now, the strongest storms may stay to our north. Temperatures will drop into the 30s and 40s by Sunday morning. 

Sunday: Early morning showers are likely. We will hit our high early in the morning and we will likely be in the 40s by the afternoon, but the wind will make it feel like the 30s all day long. We are expecting our first freeze of the season Sunday night/Monday morning as temperatures tank into the 20s and 30s. Prepare to take care of people, pets, and plants. A hard freeze may even be possible, which would mean protecting pipes – that detail is still a bit unclear. Stay tuned!

Next Week: Much colder to start in the 40s and 50s for highs and we’re back in the 60s and 70s later in the week.
