Skies will be mainly clear this evening, StormCenter 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said.

“Close the windows and turn on the heat,” Vrydaghs said. “Temperatures will fall back through the 40s this evening, then into the lower 30s with areas of frost by morning.”

Sunday: Lots of sunshine is on tap, though it will be a cooler than normal afternoon with highs around 50 degrees.

“This would be a great day to get outside and do some raking or cleaning of the gutters,” Vrydaghs said.

Dry weather persists into Sunday night, along with temperatures dropping into the lower 30s.

Monday: After a cold and frosty start with temperatures in the 30s, temperatures will get closer to normal in the afternoon with highs in the middle 60s. Lots of sunshine is expected throughout the day with more clouds arriving into the evening. There is a slight chance for a few showers Monday night, but it won’t be as cold with lows in the 40s.

Tuesday: Partly sunny and milder conditions are expected with highs in the lower 60s.

Wednesday: An unseasonably mild start to the day with morning temperatures in the 50s will end with showers and storms in the evening. Sun gives way to clouds as a cold front approaches the area. Winds pick up out of the south into the afternoon with highs in the middle 60s. Showers and storms arrive in the evening and overnight. It will become windy with gusts up to 30 mph possible. The timing of th efront will be one to watch in the coming days. The earlier the storms arrives, the greater the strength of these storms will be.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, breezy and cooler weather is expected. A few lingering showers are possible in the first part of the day as a cold front exits the area. Temperatures hold in the 50s.
