It was a chilly start with temperatures down into the 30's but readings are climbing under blues skies and sunshine, as a weak area of high pressure supplies with the nice conditions. A crisp fall feel will be in the air as temperatures top off in the lower 60's, right about where we should be for this time of year.
A cold front will move through tonight into tomorrow morning with a few showers or perhaps a brief downpour, followed by a surge of the coldest air of the season starting Saturday, along with a gusty wind.
Showers will end early tomorrow followed by afternoon sunshine. The winds will pick up in the afternoon as colder air starts to stream in. It will be breezy and cool for tomorrow night's high school football games but it will be dry. You won't notice the chill tomorrow so much, however readings will only make it into the 50s on Saturday. As the wind eases Saturday night temperatures will plunge. A killing frost or freeze is likely by Sunday morning! It will likely put an end to the growing season.
Sunday will be sunny, but with a late November-like chill! Temperatures will stay in the 40s despite a fair amount of sunshine. Monday morning will be even colder with a hard freeze. Temperatures will plunge into the 20s both Sunday and Monday morning. It will still be chilly on Monday however a mid-week warm up is expected with temperatures climbing back to more seasonable levels.
