WEATHER

On Monday we will have sunny skies, with a high near 58. Light and variable wind.

Wake up to a freezing 32 degrees but wait for it…temperatures will quickly rise to 41 by 10 p.m. and almost 50 degrees by noon.

Accuweather says the high will be only 54 at 4 p.m. But we like the National Weather Service prediction of 58. Regardless the warm weather will be a nice chance to thaw our brains after the chilly weather we experienced last week.

Monday night by dinner time we will see a dip in temperature to 49 degrees, not too bad. By midnight temperature will reach 41. We will have Southeast wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

Over night temperatures will hold steady in the low 40’s actually rising a little to reach 42 by 6 a.m. on Tues Morning.

Tuesday hang on to your socks, actually hang them up and take out the flip flops, it’s going to be sunny with a high of near 65 and mild Southwest winds 5 to 7 mph becoming northwest in the afternoon.
