Rest of the work week: A couple quiet days before Friday rain

/ February 2, 2021 at 9:15 PM

Chilly temperatures will define the next couple days as Arctic air continues to spill into the area. We’ll start Wednesday below freezing in most locations away from the immediate coast; despite full sunshine, temperatures will struggle to reach the low 50s. Another freezing cold night is ahead for Thursday, but the afternoon will be a little warmer as winds swing around to the south ahead of the next cold front. Cloud cover will increase and help keep us warmer for Friday morning, with lows in the mid-40s. By Friday afternoon, we’ll see highs return to the low 60s — and a pre-frontal band of showers will roll through the area as well.
