Colder for a couple days…April 10th, 2012 at 6:24 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
The next couple days will start with near-freezing temperatures, and feature cool–if not slightly chilly–afternoons. Today, we start with sunshine and upper 30s… but the afternoon will NOT be as warm as the past several days. This will be our coolest day of the week! Clouds increase this afternoon… and the winds pick up, too. It might be a little gusty at times, with our high temps getting stuck in the upper 40s. A rare below-normal day this season. We can’t rule out a stray sprinkle with the cloud cover late today and tonight, but will see mostly dry weather.
Despite the cloud cover tonight, we’re still expecting to drop close to freezing in this colder airmass. So a FREEZE WATCH stands through Wednesday morning. Bring in the plants you can… protect what you can’t:
Morning clouds will break up a bit Wednesday afternoon. It will still be a cool, below-normal day with highs in the lower 50s. We’ll likely be back down at or below freezing on Thursday morning, but THEN a warming trend for the end of the week and the weekend. Here’s the high temperature trend for the next several days:
There will be even more warming over the weekend, but it comes along with the increased chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. It’s still a ways out, so timing is in question… be sure to stay tuned to the forecast for the latest!
