Warm temps will drop with rain in forecast


Clouds thicken tonight, but the weather stays breezy and mild with temperatures falling through the 70s.

Overnight, it will be windy at times, and there could be a few rumbles of thunder, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs, adding it will be "cloudy with some scattered showers arriving by sunrise."

Say goodbye to the warm weather.

"A big drop in temperatures is expected into Monday evening and overnight," Vrydaghs said.

Scattered showers at times in the morning will precede more widespread and heavier rain in the afternoon. "Some thunderstorms are possible, and may produce some heavy downpours and strong winds as a cold front passes the area," she said.

Rain mixing and changing to some light snow is possible before it ends early Tuesday morning, as temperatures fall close to or just below freezing.

"With the warm days we have been seeing recently, the roads will not likely be an issue for any snowfall," Vrydaghs said.

Any lingering showers end early on Tuesday, then clouds give way to some sun. It will be much colder with temperatures in the 30s to start, and struggling to warm into the low 40s in the afternoon.

"It's been quite some time since we've had to talk about wind chill," Vrydaghs said, "but come Tuesday with winds between 15 and 20 mph, we will feel chills in the 20s and 30s through most of the day."

Another cold start is expected on Wednesday, with temperatures in the 20s before sunrise. Highs will reach into the 50s during the afternoon with mostly sunny skies.

It will be partly cloudy and milder Thursday, with highs in the low 60s.

There will be more clouds than sun on Friday, but it will still be mild with highs in the low to mid 60s.
