Scattered showers will linger into the evening as the cold front passes east of the area. Clouds will slowly clear and breezes will increase behind the front. Overnight temperatures are expected to cool to the low/mid 30s overnight.
We’ll continue to dry out early Saturday with increasing winds and much cooler temperatures than we’ve seen the past couple days. Clouds linger in the morning but skies through quickly clear through midday Saturday. Highs will be in the upper 40s and low 50s. Gusty wind 15-25 mph will make it feel even colder.
The coldest air of the weekend will enter Sunday. Morning lows will be in the 20s which is cold enough to damage or even kill some of the blooming fruit trees as well as plants that have been planted early. Do what you can to protect the plants as the sub-freezing mornings will linger Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Sunday afternoon, temperatures will be in the upper 30s and mid 40s.
WARMING UP NEXT WEEK
The week starts dry and cooler than normal thanks to the northwest flow. Temperatures try to warm back up by Thursday and Friday back into the 60s and possibly even 70s to end the week. No major storms are expected at this point.
