Weather Now: Clearing Tonight. Record Cold Wednesday

Weather

RIGHT NOW: Latest satellite-radar shows the strong cold front that moved thru our area, now offshore. This front has ushered in much colder (and drier) air.

The temperatures will continue to drop through the evening with the skies clearing.

Any residual moisture on pavements may freeze….watch for scattered areas of black ice as temperatures plummet overnight thru dawn Wednesday

Overnight lows will be in the teens with the winds increasing…in fact, some gusts to 40mph are possible.

Wednesday will be bright and sunny, but cold.

WEDNESDAY MORNING: Brrrrrrrrrrr

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON

Afternoon highs will only get up to around 30.

…and afternoon wind chills will only reach the low 20s with continued gusty winds.

This is unusual cold that’s moving in for Wednesday. In fact, both the coldest high temperature and coldest low temperature records could fall. That’s actually a rarity to see both those records fall.
