A clear and chilly night is in order, with clouds continuing to move away to the east. Northwest breezes from earlier in the day are already diminishing, and will lead to a light west wind overnight. Expect temperatures to be in the mid 30's by morning with areas of frost.
Wednesday will be the weather pick of this week, with a good amount of sunshine and though it will again be breezy, temperatures will rise back above average, with afternoon highs in the mid 60's. It will be a nice fall day to enjoy some outside time, especially if you want to be fairly comfortable.. as much cooler air will be returning by late this week.
The next cold front will be sliding through on Thursday, but moisture-wise, this is looking less impressive today, so other than a passing shower, I'm only expecting some extra clouds at times. It will be yet another breezy day, as winds shift to the northwest, with highs around 60. A large high center in Western Canada will then quickly slide into the north-central U.S., bringing a surge of the coolest air we've seen so far this season. We will already be feeling this by Friday. The day will be dry, with a mix of sun and clouds, but temperatures will only top out in the 40's. This will be more than ten degrees below average.
The high center then parks itself over the state into early Saturday. The set up is there for the coldest morning we've seen since last April. A clear sky, calm winds and very dry air. A hard freeze is in order Saturday morning, with widespread temperatures down in the 20's.
The weekend itself will be dry, but cool with highs in the upper 40's Saturday, despite abundant sunshine. On Sunday, a southwest flow will take hold, allowing for stronger winds, and a quick warm up. After another cold start, temperatures will rise well into the 50's by later afternoon, while it turns a bit windy. This will all be out ahead of the next front which may bring some rain chances Monday and Tuesday.
- Federal meteorologists say the current El Nino is already the second strongest on record for this time of year and could be one of the most potent weather changers of the past 65 years.
