Daytime highs may have been near normal on Monday, but with the wind it didn't always feel that way. Mainly clear skies tonight will allow temperatures to fall into the seasonable mid and upper 30s. However, those winds will still be in play, which means it will feel like it's in the low 30s and 20s at times tonight.
Tuesday will be another day that features plenty of sunshine, but chilly conditions. In fact, the high temperatures alone will be colder than what it felt like on Monday. Factor in a consistent northwesterly wind and we're looking at a day that feels like it's in the 30s and 40s throughout. Tuesday night will be the coldest night we've experienced so far this season with widespread frost and freezing expected as temperatures plummet into the 20s and low 30s.
Wednesday will be even colder day than Tuesday as far as high temperatures are concerned with temps only reaching into the low 50s. The big difference will be that Wednesday won't be as windy so it may actually feel a little warmer outside. Plus Wednesday will continue to feature an abundance of sunshine.
Very late Wednesday night (as the hours near sunrise on Thursday), some rain will push into the area from the west as a low pressure system approaches. This low will continue to bring rain to the area through Thursday morning and into the afternoon before tapering off. The heaviest of the rain will come from mid morning into the early afternoon. Rainfall totals will generally end up around .50". Highs on Thursday will top out in the mid 50s.
