The biggest change will be temperatures falling throughout the day. Our high temperature will likely be recorded during the morning hours, but the strong cold front will keep cold air pushing into the area and keep temperatures plummeting into the 40’s by tomorrow night.

Wednesday will likely bring some of the coldest air that we have seen in a long time. Temperatures will start in the 20’s and struggle to warm into the upper 40’s, even with plentiful sunshine.

Rain is back in the forecast for Thursday overnight, into Friday afternoon, as well as a small warm up. This will allow lows to jump into the upper 30’s through the weekend, but the general cold snap will stick around through the weekend.
