Cold air moving back in

Posted: Updated:

Good Monday.  After a mild and wet start to winter, our first cold blast will start to move in today.

Highs for the past 3 days have been 63 on Friday, 71 on Saturday, and 71 on Sunday.  That's about 20 degrees above normal.

We will have a very noticeable cool down starting today.

The front that brought the rain Saturday and Sunday morning is now moving east, out of the area, and we can expect cool, breezy air to move in starting this after noon.

Temps today will actually cool into the mid to upper 40s this afternoon with clearing skies and winds increasing to 10-15 mph from the northwest.

After sunset, we will cool rapidly, falling into he upper 20s by Tuesday morning.

It will be a cold Christmas Eve with the high Tuesday only reaching the upper 30s!

Christmas Day will continue the cold spell with a low in the upper 10s and low 20s and a high in the mid 40s Wednesday afternoon.

We will be cool and dry through the end of the week and the weekend as well.
