Weekend Weather: First Freeze Of The Year Brings Cold, Blustery Conditions

The weekend is finally upon us and it's going to start out on a very chilly note, especially when you consider that it's only the second week of November. Temperatures today will only reach the 30s behind that strong cold front which brought rain overnight.

Since we have brisk winds today, wind chill readings will be in the 20s all day long. If you haven't brought out the winter gear yet, today is probably the day you'll have to.

Overnight, we are going to see a hard freeze. I was noticing in the yard yesterday that there were still some things flowering. After Friday night, the growing season truly will be over, unless you have brought things in or covered them up.

Saturday brings bright and sunny weather and after the cold start, temperatures will rebound toward 40 in the afternoon. It won't be as cold Saturday night, although it's still going to be chilly.

Sunday brings sunshine blended with clouds, although the trend will be for the clouds to win out by the end of the day. Veterans Day is cloudy and seasonable with readings in the lower 50s. Another batch of cold air arrives later Tuesday, with another chance of some snow over the interior. Most likely, it will just rain at the coastline. Next week will average quite a bit below normal.
