A cold afternoon is on tap

Posted: Updated:

I hope you like wind! Gusts will be as high as 35 mph this afternoon and sustained winds between 15-25 mph. Couple that with temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s this afternoon and it will feel much colder. Don't worry! Warmer temperatures move in for the weekend.

 I hope you like wind! Sustained winds will be between 15-25 mph from the northwest with gusts as high as 35 mph. That pumps some cold air into the region as highs only manage the upper 40s to low 50s this afternoon.

We'll stay mostly sunny to end the week and begin the weekend. Highs climb steadily from the low 60s tomorrow into the low 70s by Saturday. A bit more cloud cover will enter the picture Sunday ahead of our next cold front. It will bring a line of showers and thunderstorms through the region sometime Monday afternoon.
