Behind the cold front that came through, we're experiencing much cooler temperatures, lighter winds as well as drier conditions. This has made for a beautiful Saturday. Sunday will also be nice with these similar conditions, starting on the chilly side in the upper 40s and a high in the upper 70s to low 80s.
Clear skies will be the main story for the start of the work week. Surface heating will allow us to get into the mid 80s by Monday and we will hover there for the middle of the work week with lows pretty close to 60. Wind will pick up a bit by Monday and Tuesday.
An upper level system will drag another significant front through the area sometime on Friday. Models are not indicating much of a rain chance just yet but we will watch that potential as it gets closer. The front will also bring a polar air mass behind it, meaning there could be even cooler temperatures than we saw with this last system for next weekend, into the 70s or cooler.
We have a 5:00 show for you on this Saturday because of sports on FOX, so join us then!
