By late afternoon, the system shifts east and much colder air is set to spill in. We've already reached the low 70s early this morning and that was our high for the day, temps will continue to tumble through the afternoon. By mid afternoon, we'll drop into the mid 50s.
You'll need the heaters going overnight, as we'll wake up tomorrow morning in the mid 30s. Thursday brings sunny and breezy conditions with highs around 60. As we wrap up the workweek and head into the weekend temps slowly moderate, with low 60s on Friday, then mid to upper 60s for Saturday and Sunday. By Monday, we'll be back in the 70s.
