Rain and clouds are moving east with a cold front this morning and our Tuesday will be a breezy and cooler day. The major breakthrough will be returning sunshine, something we haven’t seen much of over the past 2 weeks.
This morning temperatures are in the 40s and low 50s as cooler air is riding the northwest wind into the region. It will also be a breezy day with sustained winds between 15 to 20 miles per hour, with gusts in the 30 to 35 mile per hour range. A Lake Wind Advisory is in effect through 4 p.m., before winds decrease this evening.
While this isn’t the arctic air we have seen with the past few cold fronts, the wind will keep wind chill temperatures on the chilly side today. Afternoon highs will be in the 50s and low 60s.
A few clouds may be slow to clear in some areas, but it will be mostly sunny by this afternoon in the majority of locations. With the cold air in place tonight lows will be in the 30s, with most areas remaining just above freezing.
Wednesday will be a spectacular day with light wind, sunshine and a few clouds, and highs in the mid to upper 60s.
A weak disturbance will move through Thursday bringing a slight chance for showers but most areas will stay dry. Due to a breezy southwest wind highs will return to the 70s. The breezy conditions will continue Friday with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 60s.
The weekend looks dry, but cooler as we will fall into the 50s.
At the moment we are keeping a close eye on Monday. Another arctic front will bring the chance of steady rain early in the week with temperatures cold enough to support our next chance of winter weather. Stay with us for updates!
