Freeze Warning tonight – Sunny and slightly warmer Thursday!

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 –

Good afternoon!  It certainly has been a cold afternoon with temperatures in the 30’s across the lower elevations and the upper 20’s in the mountains.  We had some of those snow bands move across the region early this morning which put down a light snow accumulation in a brief period of time.  The good news, snow is over.  The bad news, we have a killing freeze in the forecast tonight.  Here is the Freeze Warning.

High pressure will bring clear skies and cold temperatures to the area tonight, but the good news, temperatures will warm into the weekend.

Take a look at this satellite image from NOAA today.  We have clear skies on tap for tonight and tomorrow.

Here is a look at our forecast maps through Saturday.

8 PM Tonight – Clear and cold.

Midnight:  Clear skies and very cold temperatures.

8 AM Thursday – Dress Warm!  Temperatures will be in the teens and lower 20’s.

Noon Thursday – Sunny, but chilly.

8 PM Thursday – High pressure keeps us clear early, but clouds move into the area late.

Noon Friday – Skies will be cloudy with spotty showers late in the day.

1 AM Saturday – We have a better rain chance late Friday night into early Saturday as a cold front move through the area.

4 AM Saturday – Rain is likely.

Sunday will be sunny and a little cooler with highs in the upper 40’s and lower 50’s,

Thursday should be a great day even with the chilly high temperatures.

We warm up into early next week!

Have a great night!
