What We’re Tracking
- Clearing this afternoon
- Cold weekend ahead
- Rain returns with wintry mix possible
Our cold front is already on the move this morning with many dropping nearly 20° within half an hour. By the time you’re heading out the door, we’ll already be in the 40s and 50s to start out. It is possible that a few isolated showers continue to impact the area as well this morning.
Unfortunately, temperatures will really struggle to warm much throughout the day, likely only rebounding into the upper 40s and lower 50s by the afternoon. Luckily we should clear out from cloud cover and see a bit more sunshine for the second half of the day.
Don’t expect much of a warm weekend, we stay well below average struggling into the low 40s Saturday which is close to our average ‘low’ this time of year. Sunday it’s possible we’re stuck in the 30s all day as our precipitation chances increase.
Early Saturday should remain dry before we start to see showers moving in again for Saturday afternoon into Sunday. Temperatures drop into the 30s Saturday night and into Sunday morning, so we’ll have to monitor precipitation chances closely as a wintry mix may be possible for some. Overall, the weekend is looking cold and rainy.
After Sunday, we get a chance to dry out, but the colder air sticks around. Even though it’s several days away, it’s looking like a pretty good bet that Halloween will be on the colder side this year. Make sure trick-or-treaters have lots of layers in their costumes! Highs on Tuesday will likely be in the mid 40s with evening temperatures dipping into the 30s.
