Cold Overnight; Re-Freeze

After a cold morning, temperatures rebounded nicely this afternoon under sunny skies. Clear skies and light winds will lead to another cold overnight. Watch out for refreezing and possible slick spots tonight. We will settle into a slightly above average temperature pattern for at least the next week although mornings will still be cold. Skies will be mostly sunny/clear during that time with the exception of Monday where rain should roll in. We hope you enjoy the calm weather.

Forecast Discussion

Clear skies and cold temperatures are expected for our overnight. Watch out for refreezing tonight of any snowfall that melted today. High pressure centered to our southwest will allow for warmer southwest winds tomorrow. Slightly above average temperatures will be the theme of the next week as there is no real cold air from Canada heading our way. The mornings will still be cold however as the snow cover, clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures to drop a little more than usual. The only fly in the ointment is rain on Monday and Monday night ahead of a cold front. The front passes through Tuesday morning and clears us out but the air behind it is not very cold.
