With the clear skies, temperatures have dropped into the 20s. Even though it’s the coldest morning of the week so far, these readings are pretty close to normal for this time of year:
There is a westerly wind, making it feel even colder… wind chills are in the teens! This afternoon, we will finally… FINALLY… enjoy some sunshine. Temperatures will be seasonably chilly, with highs in the upper 30s. The high moves right over us on Friday, so we should be close to full sun, and we’ll even be a little warmer, with highs in the lower 40s.
Over the weekend, a strong upper level ridge will build into the region, continuing our warm-up:
There will be some low level moisture streaming northward, and this may lead to an increase in cloud cover Sunday and Monday–even some light precipitation. BUT we still should see highs top out in the upper 40s to near 50-degrees!
