Weekend Forecast: A Cold Snap Comes To The Region

One of the things you will notice in the forecast is the cold temperatures during the day this weekend, mainly Sunday, but also the warm-up next week. Indeed our upcoming cold snap will last long enough to bring an end to the growing season, but won’t be long lasting.

I expect two to three mornings of near freezing or subfreezing temperatures Sunday through Tuesday, but the coldest morning is clearly coming Monday.

A pair of fronts will cross the region through Saturday and each one ushers in slightly colder air. You will notice a lot clouds Friday morning, but the sun will make a strong return in the afternoon. It will be a bit breezy, but not windy.

The second front goes by Saturday and again, similar to Friday, any clouds will depart leaving us with plenty of sunshine. Winds will be stronger Saturday.

The cold really settles in for Sunday and Monday with November-like highs in the 40s. A moderating trend on Tuesday sees readings back into the 50s and 60s return for the middle of the week.

Although it’s chilly and the leaves are falling, we are still in a drought. If you did some gardening this fall, keep things evenly moist until the ground freezes.

Friday: Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high in the lower 60s.

Friday Night: Increasing clouds, with a low 40-45.

Saturday: A morning sprinkle, then blustery and cold. Highs in the lower 50s.

Saturday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 32. Northwest wind around 8 mph.

Sunday: Sunny, with a high in the mid-40s.

Monday: Sunny, with a high near 45-50.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 55-60.
