Weather

A Week of Extremes

By Angela Zalucha
STAFF METEOROLOGIST

This week’s weather features relatively warm temperatures during the beginning of the week, then a shift to the coldest temperatures we have seen this autumn. This afternoon will be pleasantly warm with an afternoon high temperature in the lower 70s F. A warm front moves through this evening, which will help push Wednesday’s high temperature to near 80 F. As a low pressure system approaches from the west, we will have an increased chance for rain Wednesday night and Thursday morning. With this system comes much cooler temperatures, possibly as low as 40 F Thursday night. The high temperature on Friday will be cooler than the low tonight!
