Tonight will bring a big change across the twin states as a cold front moves across the region. In the wake of the front will be our last night of mild temperatures with an increase activity for rain. With these showers a few rumbles of thunder are possible, but all of the rain should be gone out of the viewing area by lunch time.

For your Sunday a significant cool down is expected as we will only be sitting in the upper 50s area wide. Our high in the lower 60s will occur just after midnight and temperatures will fall from there. Colder weather will stick around with us for much of next week with highs only sitting in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Even up under the March sun we will struggle to warm up, due to the strong cold air advection we will have from the North.

Wednesday looks to be the coldest day for you, as it's possible we could wake up to some frost on the ground. Right now I'm going to hold temperatures at the freezing mark, but some models are beginning to take a turn that we could dip a little below the freezing mark, which could impact vegetation. Even though temperatures will only be at or below freezing for about 4 hours, a freeze is possible.

Thursday begins our warm-up as temperatures will be sitting in the upper 60s. With the warmer weather and increase in moisture comes a chance for some isolated showers. Showers will remain with us into Friday night ahead of another weak front. With temperatures sitting in the low to mid 70s Friday, the weak front will only drop our temperatures a few degrees for Saturday.
