WEATHER BLOG: Chilly But Nice
A cold front will move through from the northwest Friday afternoon accompanied by scattered to broken cloud cover but no rain. Colder air behind the front sets the stage for a very chilly night with temperatures in some suburbs dropping to near freezing. Saturday is sunny but quite cool, and then a big warming trend Sunday into Monday.
There will be some quieter weather for the next few days. We have one high pressure retreating to the east Friday with the approach of a cold front. This boundary will be denoted by a few clouds crossing through the region, but we will not get any rainfall with the fronts passing.
There will also be a little bit of a breeze Friday afternoon with the winds aloft mixing down. Friday night as the high pressure behind this front moves into the region winds will diminish quickly in the evening, then temperatures will drop off like a rock bottoming out in the mid 30s around the region. That’s getting close to the record for the date.
Saturday remains on the cool side despite plenty of sunshine, then as the high moves off shore later in the day we’ll get a more southerly flow and a return to milder weather for the latter part of the weekend. Sunday will have a few more clouds fill in ahead of the next storm system, but there will be some sunshine as well. It will remain warm on Monday until a cold front moves through the region. This boundary will trigger a shower or two as it moves through the area.
Behind this front it becomes dry again on Tuesday into Wednesday with seasonable temperatures on Tuesday and only a bit milder on Wednesday.
