Tuesday, March 25 Forecast Discussion

A cold, blustery north wind has been with us throughout the day, and it has impeded our temperatures a bit this afternoon. We should still just be able to reach 60 today before temperatures begin to plummet rapidly after sunset. Temperatures tomorrow morning will start in the mid to upper 20s for most locations, causing all of us to be under a Freeze Warning overnight.

Temperatures overnight will be cold long enough to kill sensitive plants and vegetation already in the ground. You will want to bring inside any plants that are in pots or vases, and cover plants that are outside to keep them warm enough through the night to survive. Also, make sure outdoor pets will remain warm and have unfrozen water through the night.

Highs tomorrow will attempt to return to 60 as winds will start to turn southeasterly through the afternoon hours, setting the stage for a run at 70 for Thursday and mid 70s for Friday and Saturday.

Our next system looks to hold off on impacting us until late on Thursday, so most of Thursday looks dry. Rain will be around in the form of showers for Friday before some lingering showers finally exit on Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon and evening will be dry for the 59/20 Music Festival.

Ample sunshine returns starting on Sunday and will last into next week as highs will make a push toward 80 on Monday before they back off a bit heading into Tuesday as some cooler air from a cold front to our north slides in our direction.
