Posted by Meteorologist Melissa Mack…Wednesday Update

Temperatures have been slowly dropping throughout the day due to the passage of a cold front. Our high temperatures were actually met closer to midnight as opposed to the usual mid-to-late afternoon daytime high.

Tonight will cool down to a comfortable low of the 55-60° range with gradually clearing skies.

High pressure will take over the ‘driver’s seat’ on Thursday. This will include a partly to mostly sunny sky and highs in the lower to middle 70s.

Friday will be another beauty with highs climbing into the upper 70s.

We will not return ‘back to normal’ territory in the temperature department until this weekend. The warm-up will only be a ‘short stint’ as temperatures will once again fall back into ‘below normal territory’ early next week.  This dip in the jet stream, aka upper level trough, will be the culprit for daytime heat instability showers as well as well-below normal high temps.
