High yesterday was 63° The low this morning was 52°
Today: From calm wind this morning at daybreak to 20-30 mph west wind, shifting to NW and gusting as high as 45 mph this afternoon. That’s the big story! The fast moving cold front riding on this wind has a 50% chance of rain with it, though the rain is not thought to amount to more than 1/10 of an inch. The high should reach about 58° by noon, then start to drop.
Tonight: The NW wind continues, getting up to 30-35 mph with gusts to 50 mph. The temperature could drop to about 35°. The chance of rain is 80% overnight, but accumulations will only be from a tenth to a quarter inch. In the very early morning snow flurries are possible.
Friday: We could wake up to snow flurries, or just a little drizzle, though with the NW wind still blowing 20-30 mph, drizzle doesn’t seem like a good description. The morning will be windy and starting out in the mid-30s with wind gusts to 35 mph. That should begin to let up in the afternoon, warming into the upper 40s with less wind.
Overnight, the skies will clear a little. The wind should be out of the NW 10-15 mph with 25 mph gusts. The temperature should drop to about 34°.
Rest of the week: Saturday should be sunny, with a lighter NW wind of 5-10 mph, and a high around 58°. Saturday night the wind will calm and the coldest temperature of 32° will set in overnight.
Sunday will see the calm wind shift to westerly and a warmer 64° will preside over the afternoon. Monday will see partly sunny skies and up to 62°. Then, we’ll wait for the next cold front to arrive. After all, next Friday (12/21) will be the first official day of winter.
