Gusty winds cool down temperatures into the weekend


It was a delightful Thursday as temperatures soared into the upper 50s in the city. The warmth is coming to a quick end as a cold front rushes through the region in the evening. While a few showers will be possible, it will be the wind that will be kicking up toward 30 mph from the northwest and allow temperatures to take a tumble. 

A few scattered showers will be possible during Thursday evening as the cold front crosses through the region.  The southwesterly winds that brought the pleasant temperatures will then shift to the northwest overnight. As a result, temperatures will drop to around 40 by daybreak, but the 30 mph gusts will make it feel more like the lower 30s.

It will remain blustery throughout the day on Friday. Despite the ample sunshine, highs will stay in the mid 40s in the afternoon. The winds may ease a touch, but it will feel no better than the upper 30s during the day.

It remains chilly on Saturday. A weak wave of low pressure will pass to the south and possibly bring a passing rain or snow shower. Much of the day, though, will feature a mix of sun and clouds. with highs in the mid 40s.

Sunday will be a pleasant day as high pressure briefly crosses through the region. Expect sunny skies as highs return to the lower 50s.

Early on Monday, a storm will pass off-shore and bring some showers along coastal sections. During the day, the sun will break through and a good southwesterly wind will develop. Temperatures will end up jumping into the 60s during the day before a cold front brings a stronger line of showers late in the day. Once again, cold air will rush right back into the region as the front departs. 

Highs on Tuesday will likely stay in the lower 40s, with a gusty wind making it feel much colder.
