Good Wednesday morning. Tracking a cold front that will slide through the region today with some showers and/or snow showers, mainly early on this Wednesday. Some drier air will try and build south today, however, it'll be a slow process. I would not be surprised if it takes most of the day before cloud coverage erodes. As a result, we are only forecasting breaks of late day sun developing and stuggling temperatures, too. I think most of the day will be spent in the raw 40s. We may flirt with 50° with enough sun this afternoon, but overall today, skies will struggle with clouds. Most of the rain and/or snow showers early will diminish later today.
Through tonight, I think skies will quickly clear and wind speeds will begin to ease. This will make way for an unseasonably cold night. The record for tonight/Thursday morning is 23°. It'll be a very close call, we are forecasting a low near 25°. This is important to know, especially if you have started any gardening with the recent nice weather. If you have, you'll need to take action tonight to protect any cold sensitive plants with a good hard freeze tonight.
Overall, Thursday will be a better day. It'll be a little gusty through the day with a good deal of sunshine. Also, I want to make mention about the brush fire risk. Thursday will be a perfect example of a day with an elevated brush fire risk. A combination of gusty wind and dry air at the surface will likely cause any outdoor buring to spread. I know we just had some rain, but looking at the bigger picture, it really was not that much. Keep in mind the statewide burn ban lasts through May 14th, and it is against the law burn anything outdoors and it is a punishable fine of $500.
Aside from that, Thursday will be a better day with sunshine mixing with a few clouds with highs in the 55 to 60° range.
Next weather front on Friday with some showers for late in the day followed by yet another front on Saturday with more showers pivoting through the region. It will be cooler after Friday's highs in the mid 60s. By Saturday, we likely stop in the 50s with even cooler air for Sunday.
Have a good day.
Wednesday: Windy and cool with showers and/or snow showers diminishing. Breaks of afternoon sun will try and develop. The 5 Degree Guarantee 50.
