Temperatures on Veterans Day will be close to seasonal normal with highs in the mid 70s and lows in the lower 50s. Skies will start off cloudy, but by the afternoon, the sun should start to peek through. Rain chances go up to around 90 percent overnight.
A major cool down is on the way. Tuesday, a cold front will move through bringing showers and a few thunderstorms in the morning. Some locations in the northwestern portion of the News 25 viewing area could see a wintry mix of sleet and rain, but accumulation is not expected.
After the front moves through, skies will remain cloudy and strong winds will help push in an arctic air mass. Winds will be blustery out of the north at 20-30 miles per hour with gusts up to 35 miles per hour. It would be a good idea to bring in any trash cans, outdoor furniture, or decorations.
Tuesday, temperatures will struggle to get out of the 40s. Most areas will see high temperatures in the mid 40s, but when you factor in the wind chill, it will feel like it’s in the 30s all day.
Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, low temperatures will be at or near record cold levels. Overnight lows will range from 25 to 29 degrees and the wind chill will make it feel like its in the lower 20s. A Freeze Watch has been issued.
Sunny skies return Wednesday and winds will be much calmer. Temperatures will gradually warm throughout the week, finally getting above 60 degrees on Friday afternoon.
On the water, a light chop is expected Monday with seas increasing overnight. A Gale Warning has been issued for winds of 25-30 knots on Tuesday. Seas will be at 3-5 feet.
