Tuesday AM Freeze; Late Week Rain?

WIDESPREAD FREEZE LIKELY TONIGHT

After a cold front blew its way through the area yesterday, we’ll see the coldest night for the next week or so tonight. Light winds, clear skies, and dry air will combine to give us the coldest readings we’ve seen in a few weeks, with widespread upper 20s and lower 30s for low temperatures tomorrow morning. We’ll only rebound slightly tomorrow as cold air advection will still be in play, pushing highs only into the lower to middle 50s.

A warmup takes place for the latter part of the week with temperatures back to near normal with highs in the 60s and lows around 40. We’ll see increasing clouds Thursday with a chance of showers coming in for Friday.

We’ll be sandwiched between the Friday system and another stronger storm system working in from the west this weekend. With southerly flow ahead of the system, highs will top the 70 degree mark possibly on Sunday and definitely come Monday of next week. Rain chances will increase Monday and Tuesday, with thunderstorms possible as well. It’s too soon to tell how strong the storms will be; I’ll leave the forecast for the early next week storm system in Miller and Desmond’s more than capable hands!
