FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Good morning and happy Sunday!

It’s going to be another beautiful fall day ahead of a much colder workweek.

It’s a cool start to the morning with a few mixed clouds and temperatures around 40 degrees. Today, we’ll see plenty of sunshine and a southwesterly breeze. This combination will help to boost temperatures into the upper 60s, which is nearly a 10 degree jump compared to yesterday and just a couple degrees warmer than normal for this time of year.

This evening and overnight, clouds will start to build in as a cold front moves through the area. Temperatures will fall down to the lower 40s, which is about 5 degrees colder than normal for this time of year.

Behind the front, we’ll see a cloudy, breezy and much colder start to the week. Monday’s highs will struggle to climb into the upper 40s alongside a strong breeze. The wind will pick up out of the west at 10-15 mph with gusts reaching 25-30 mph. This will create a wind chill that makes our afternoon highs feel like they only reached 40 degrees.

Clouds and a cold breeze will stick around on Tuesday. Temperatures will only reach the mid 40 a the chance for showers builds in later in the day and overnight.

High pressure will start to build back in by the end of the week and help to clear clouds. While this will help to warm temperatures into the 50s again on Wednesday and Thursday, then more seasonal highs in the 60s Friday and Saturday, it will also aid in more chilly nights. Lows Tuesday morning through Friday morning will be in the 30s, which is the coldest stretch we’ve seen so far this season and will lead to a widespread chance for frost and a hard freeze.

Have a great rest of your weekend!
