Cold Front Brings An End To The Warmth Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the passage of a strong cold front which will bring our recent stretch of abnormally mild weather to an end. Showers are moving through the area ahead of that front this morning, falling as plain rain near the coast and freezing rain farther inland. Temperatures will be very slow to warm up in the foothills and mountains due to cold air damming this morning.

As the front passes though, expect a big jump in temps as the warm air just aloft gets mixed down to the surface before getting swept east by the incoming front. This jump will occur just after noon, and will result in temps getting up into the mid to upper 40’s across the region (south of Route 2). Temps will quickly fall back below freezing tonight as breezy NW winds transport a colder airmass into the region.
