01/11 Ryan’s “Cold Front” Thursday Night Forecast

If you’ve enjoyed the last few days of warm and humid afternoons I have some bad news for you; a cold front is moving though overnight and will leave us with a much colder and drier week. Winds remain around 5 mph at the moment but will increase dramatically to 20-25 mph, even gusting as high as 30 mph as the storms move in. The NWS Storm Prediction Center does not have us even a “marginal” threat for severe weather, so while none is expected a few stronger thunderstorms are not out of the question. Strong cold air advection behind the front will produce rapid cooling, allowing for tonight’s low (52 degrees) to be significantly warmer than tomorrow’s high (44 degrees). Afternoons over the next seven days will fluctuate between the mid 40s to the mid 50s (Monday: 54 degrees), but the only evening expected to be above freezing will be Monday night’s low of 35 which occurs just before another, weaker front brings reinforcing cold & dry air. Right now, Saturday and Sunday night will be the coldest at 26 and 29 degrees respectively, and Hard Freeze Warnings will likely be issued. Stay tuned for updates.
