From a frigid start in the 20s this morning, we’ll only get back to the low to middle 50s this afternoon. High clouds will gradually cover the sky this afternoon, but there’s no rain in the forecast.
We’ll stay dry tonight as clouds lower and thicken. Lows will be in the 20s in the mountains but 30s – well above freezing – everywhere else.
Tuesday is a First Alert Weather Day. In short, it will be wet and cold. An area of low pressure will drift along the northern Gulf Coast, throwing rain and drizzle back our way. In the mountains, there will be a little freezing rain early on. Temperatures will eventually inch up above freezing in the High Country and the 40s everywhere else.
Dry conditions will return Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 50s.
Thursday and Friday will be mostly sunny and chilly with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s. The weekend also looks dry and cool with partly sunny skies and highs in the low to middle 50s.
