We’re still not finished with winter temperatures thanks to the strong cold front last night. Rain and wind moved in causing a stir on the roads last night and if you were out in it, you immediately felt the cold air slide in. We’ve already dropped into the 30s and will only make it to about 43 degrees this afternoon. The good news is the abundant sunshine that goes along with it. The only precipitation will be a few light and minor rain/snow showers in the eastern counties.

Cold air is in place and will keep things frigid through today. Temperatures will only reach the mid-40s despite more sunshine through the day. This is thanks to a breezy northwesterly wind that will gust up to 20 mph at times. A FREEZE WARNING will go into effect this evening as temperatures begin dropping into the 20s. Sensitive vegetation could be damaged or killed. Calm and dry weather sticks with us through the week and we warm through that time. Sunshine and a wind shift will help warm us into the 60s by Tuesday and continue to push us up to near 70 by the end of the week. The next best chance for rain arrives late Thursday night into Friday with showers and thunderstorms expected.
