JR’s Monday Night Weather Report | Provide

In the wake of a cold front that supported a few thunderstorms on Sunday, westerly winds cooled us down quite a bit on Monday. The highest temperatures on Monday were recorded around midnight. Our Monday afternoon’s readings remained fairly steady in the 50s. Plenty of cloud held for the day, and a few light showers and sprinkles dotted the landscape. Overnight the clouds will thin out a bit as westerly winds hold. Lows early Tuesday morning will establish into the mid 30’s in most areas.

Some additional watering will be possible on Tuesday. With really cold air throughout the region, don’t be surprised if a few snowflakes mix in in some areas. Wednesday will be a bit brighter, but northwesterly winds will keep a chill in the air. High temperatures for Tuesday and Wednesday will only be in the 40s. With any amount of starlight on Tuesday evening and Wednesday evening, the stage will be set for a few hard freezes, with low temperatures likely to dip into the years 20.

Winds will shift to the southeast for the latter part of the work week and into the weekend. Combine that with a decent amount of sunshine throughout this stretch, and the result will be a nice little warming trend that will bring temperatures back to near 60 degrees by Friday. High temperatures for the weekend will be back in the 60s. Saturday will likely be “pick day” for the coming weekend. We’ll let you know when we might see some thunderstorms return, on ABC12 News. -JR
