Chill returning over weekend after Spring-like, balmy Thursday

Weather

It was a gorgeous Thursday as temperatures soared into the upper 60s to lower 70s.

The warmth is coming to a sudden end as a cold front brings some showers on Thursday night and much cooler air into the early part of the weekend. Heading into next week, temperatures will recover somewhat, only for it to cool down once again as another cold front arrives late on Monday. 

A line of showers will cross through the region during the evening hours on Thursday night. As the front passes, winds will shift to the northwest bringing in the cooler air. Temperatures will start out in the lower 60s in the evening, then it will take a dive through the 50s and into the lower 40s by daybreak on Friday morning. The winds will be gusty as well making it feel more like the lower 30s.

On Friday, the gusty winds will continue from the northwest. Temperatures will end up holding in the mid 40s for much of the day, with wind chills at around 40 degrees under partly sunny skies.

It will remain chilly on Saturday, but the winds will ease off. Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures will stay in the upper 40s.

By Sunday, winds will shift more southwesterly allowing for a good moderation in temperatures. Expect highs to climb into the upper 50s. Clouds will be on the increase as a warm front moves into the region. As a result, a few light showers may develop late in the day. 

Monday looks to be unsettled as a trailing cold front crosses through the region, bringing in some showers into the forecast. Temperatures will still top out at around 60 degrees, but it will cool back down as another chilly air mass arrives. 

Taking an early look on the Wednesday getaway and Thanksgiving, it looks okay for now. A system developing offshore could cause a breeze to kick up during the day. For now, it looks dry as temperatures climb from the lower 40s on Wednesday, to around 50 on Thanksgiving Day.
