Cooler and dry today, with some scattered showers Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

Good Tuesday.  As we wrap up 2015, we will finally start to see some winter-like weather settling in.  Temperatures have been ridiculous.  Saturday we tied the high of 73.  Sunday we shattered the record of 72 with a high of 76.  Yesterday we tied the record again at 73.  Today we will be about 10 degrees cooler with a high of 62, but that is still 12 degrees above the average.  Skies will be mostly sunny this afternoon.

I would love to say we are completely done with the rain, but low pressure moving by to our south will bring a few more scattered showers overnight into Wednesday.  Rainfall amounts will be greater the further south and east you go, but I expect us to have 1/3" or less just about everywhere.  Wednesday temps will range from 49 in the morning to 59 in the afternoon.

Thursday will be cool and dry with a low of 43 and a high of 54.

Friday marks the new year, and another sharp drop in temperatures.  We will start Friday at 28 degrees, and warm only to 47 late in the day.

The weekend will stay dry and chilly.  Lows will be in the upper 20s and low 30s.  Highs will be in the upper 40s and low 50s.

    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.
