Cold Thursday with temps in the 30s and 40s


by FOX 25 Meteorologist Shiri Spear:

Abundant sunshine will greet you this morning and continue through sunset.  The sun comes at a cost: wake up weather is 20-30 degrees colder than yesterday morning!

Morning lows in the 20s will feel like the teens at times with the winds.  Thermometers will creep up to highs 38-40 degrees this afternoon.

A few clouds will pass over the region tonight with lows again in the 20s and 30s.  A change in the wind direction tomorrow will prompt gradual warming. Southwesterly winds will help temperatures  peak near 48 degrees.  Increasing moisture will lead to more clouds and the chance for a late day sprinkle.

On and off rain is forecasted for the weekend, especially Saturday.  Precipitation should stay light, but will no doubt be inconvenient for holiday shoppers and parties.
