Discussion

Our rain event has diminished and temperatures this afternoon will once again reach unseasonably mild levels well up into the 50’s. An energetic Arctic cold front, however, will bring a quick end to the mild conditions by very early tomorrow and that frontal passage will be accompanied by strong wind gusts, a quick drop in temperatures and a possible pre-dawn snow shower. Once the front clears the coast, winds will gust to 40 mph during the afternoon and temperatures will be hard-pressed to escape the 30’s. This change to cold weather will last right through the upcoming weekend. It'll get briefly milder on Tuesday before another strong cold front whips through by mid-week and we'll stay cold for the second half of the week.
