Cold Front Approaching, Goodbye Daylight Savings

Cold front coming through!

After another unseasonably warm day region-wide, nearly record-breaking for some locations, the warm air-mass that has brought 70s back to the area is now clashing with the approaching cold front, which has built in the cloud cover and a few downpours. This cold front is quick to move out, and the cooler air sinks in overnight as the clouds, the warmth, and the rain gets pulled out to sea along with the front. Temperatures are expected to take a tumble around midnight with lows in the lower 30s north, upper 30s south under a starlit-sky and a full Hunter’s Moon.

For the weekend, high temperatures only reach into the 50s, which is much closer to normal for this time of the year. High pressure slides in for Saturday, making the first day of the weekend the pick of the weekend since it starts off bright, before a few clouds slide in by the afternoon.

Don’t forget to change the clocks back one-hour before bed late Saturday night, since Daylight Saving Time ends early Sunday morning.

Speaking of Sunday, rain and even a few mountain snow showers closer to the Canadian border are possible with an approaching front from the Midwest. A warm front late Sunday into early Monday brings a quick warm-up to start the work week, but this warm-up is short-lived as a cold front sweeps from northwest to southeast Monday afternoon and evening. This front brings another round of rain showers Monday afternoon.

The cold front clears the region by Tuesday, making for a cooler and drier midweek. Tuesday highs reach into the 50s, with Wednesday and Thursday likely into the 40s for highs.
