A chilly start, sunny and 75 this afternoon

Posted: Updated:

Good Monday.  After a chilly morning with temps in the 30s, we are in store for quite a warm up.

The average high for this time of year is 69.  We will be well above that through the week.

This afternoon the high will reach about 75 under sunny skies.

Some clouds move in tonight, and the low will be much more mild with the low dropping into the low 50s.

We will get even warmer Tuesday with a high of 80.  Skies will be mostly cloudy Tuesday as a weak front dies out over the area.  It could bring us a sprinkle or two, but the chance is only 20%.

After a dry day Wednesday, we will get another shot of rain Thursday into Friday with a cold front.  We could see a few showers late Thursday, but the best chance for showers and even some storms will be Friday.

The weekend looks good.  We will cool down a bit behind the front.  Highs will fall into the mid 60s, and we will be sunny Saturday.  Models differ a bit on Sunday.  Some show rain, others dry.  Right now I am leaning toward scattered showers Sunday, but have little confidence in Sunday's forecast right now.

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.

    The roads will be very slick including interstates and main city roads Tuesday night because of these cold temperatures. So travel should be discouraged.
