Umbrella Needed Today, Then We Have To Brace For The Cold

A cold front will cross today, and it’ll bring periods of rain across the state.  Rainfall estimates should be around .50″ or less.  It’s mild this morning with 50s, but expect temps to slowly drop off behind the front with cooler 40s by this afternoon.  Tonight, skies will gradually clear and temps will drop below freezing with upper 20s and low 30s.  So, plan on a much colder start to your Wednesday compared to this morning.  However, we get to enjoy sunshine for our Hump Day.  

Colder air will continue to filter into the state for the rest of the workweek… affiliated with a Canadian Ridge of High Pressure that will glide towards our area by Friday.  This “High” is attached to an Arctic Airmass; so, by Friday morning the frigid air will settle and TEENS can be expected to start the day. It’ll remain unseasonably cold through Saturday morning with more teens expected.  Then, a southerly wind will pump in warmer air as the Arctic High moves away…leading to a nice bounce back in the 50s by Saturday afternoon.  Sunday afternoon also brings 50s. 

As for more rain, don’t expect any (after today) until possibly Sunday into Monday… stay tuned.
