Skies are clearing out after the strong cold front this morning. This is allowing temperatures to warm nicely into the 50s making it feel nice, despite running 5-10 degrees cooler than this time yesterday. Obviously, the wind was the bog story today as gusts routinely reached the 35-50 mph range.

Things are looking nice this afternoon after a rainy morning and breezy day. Wind was the big story Sunday with some areas seeing wind gusts between 40 - 55 mph. Wind has been steadily calming over the area, but there is still a chance for a few wind gusts up to 45 mph. Therefore, the WIND ADVISORY is in place through 7:00 pm. Rainfall amounts were mostly unimpressive only amounting to a few tenths of an inch. Overnight, clear skies will let temperatures cool rapidly. We will bottom out near or at freezing for Monday morning thanks to the introduction of the cooler air. A reinforcing cold front will set up for Monday night and Tuesday which looks to bring another shot of cold air through the middle of the week. Rainfall is not expected with the front, but temperatures will run about 10 degrees below normal. Morning lows will be near or below freezing through Thursday. Afternoon highs will reside in the upper 40s both Tuesday and Wednesday. A rebound in temperatures will occur as a stronger front draws closer. Expect the mild 60s for Thursday through the weekend. We stay mostly sunny through the entire week. A better chance for rain arrives early next week.
