Short Term Forecast: We will slowly see the clouds thinning out this afternoon, and that means we will see some sunshine as a dry cold front moves through. However, it will not warm us up much. High temperatures will only be in the upper 40s, and it will feel like the 30s with the wind chill.
A few clouds will be over the area tonight and it will turn colder. Lows will be in the lower 30s north of the lake with a light freeze and some frost if the winds go calm. South of the lake will be in the mid 30s. You will want to protect the plants on both sides of the lake.
We will see more sunshine on Friday with a few clouds mixed in. Unfortunately, it will not make us warmer with highs around 50. Friday Night stays cold with lows in the 30s north and around 40 south.
Weekend Forecast: A slow warm-up begins this weekend with highs in the 50s on Saturday and 60s on Sunday. Another cold front will move into the area on Sunday, and that will set off scattered showers and a few thunderstorms.
Next Week Outlook: Even warmer air arrives for the first part of next week, but we will have to dodge some rain and storms each day.
