TEMPERATURES COOLING OFF, BUT OUR PATTERN STAYS QUIET: The warmer air we started the week with will be replaced by much colder than average temps as we progress through the workweek. The cold won't last long as we are back to a milder pattern by next weekend.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: Partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies and dry conditions will be the story during this timeframe. However it will be cold and breezy with highs both days in the lower teens south and some single digits north. Some spotty flakes are possible Thursday as a warm front pushes in. That warm front brings us back to warmer air for Friday as highs will get back to the mid-20s south and near 20 north, as partly cloudy skies remain.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: High pressure will move to our south during this timeframe. We will keep partly cloudy skies and dry conditions. A strengthening southerly flow will pump warmer air into our forecast area as we go through the weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday will be in the 30s.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY: A mix of sun and clouds persists, and temperatures stay in the 20s and 30s as we warm into the afternoon on Monday. Some more clouds are possible Tuesday, with temperatures a couple degrees cooler.
