Consistently Below Normal
The chilly pattern will continue through the rest of the workweek, as temperatures average about 5-degrees below normal through Friday. We expect a continuation of dry weather, although there may be a bit more cloudiness by Friday. The weekend starts with milder temperatures, and then by Sunday, some rain enters the picture by late in the day.

A reinforcing cold front moves through the area overnight and into early Thursday. The front will maintain chilly temperatures through Friday, as a fresh, Canadian air mass arrives in behind it.
More dry weather is expected, with only an increase in some mid and high level cloudiness expected by Friday.
The approach of the next frontal system will have some Gulf moisture to tap into, so we do expect some rain by late Sunday, perhaps lingering into early next week. Perhaps that will clean some of the the crud off the roads by then.
