Temps Below Freezing Tonight For Most -Bill Graul
Staying Cool Through Wednesday
Tonight’s Forecast Low: 29F / Tuesday’s Forecast High: 47F…
The cold front that swept southeast across the region Sunday night… made for a cloudy, breezy and much cooler Monday. Daytime high temps today were only in the upper 30s to low-mid 40s. Blustery NW winds caused wind chill in the upper 20s and 30s! Brrr! There were also some sprinkles or flurries in spots.
Expect clouds this evening, along with some lingering sprinkles or flurries in spots. Otherwise, partial clearing is possible overnight… along with lighter winds in the 5-10 mph range. This will make for a cold night with lows in the 20s for most, perhaps even some upper teens in traditional colder parts of Jackson and Monroe counties. If you put plants outside or connected garden hoses, you may want to take precautions to protect against the cold tonight. In fact, similar temps are expected the next couple of nights as well.
Temps will remain well short of average Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs mainly in the 40s and overnight lows Tuesday and Wednesday nights in the 20s for most. We may see some sunshine at times during the morning hours both days, but then clouds will increase through the day with sprinkles or flurries possible in spots. Keep in mind average highs this time of year are closer to 60F… with average lows around 40F.
Looking Ahead… Mostly sunny and warmer Thursday, with highs in the upper 50s. Some spots could flirt with 60F. Isolated showers or sprinkles will be possible Friday and Saturday, with highs mainly in the mid 50s. Sunday looks dry at this point with a mix of clouds and sun, with highs remaining in the mid 50s.
The chance for rain showers increases a bit heading into the start of next week, but so do temperatures. Expect highs around 60F Monday, then mid 60s on Tuesday.
In the meantime, you might want an extra blanket on the bed the next couple of nights. Have a good night! -Bill Graul
