A cold front passing through our area is expected to generate showers throughout the day, followed by chilly temperatures, according to the National Weather Service.
The NWS forecasts the front will bring gusty winds, but no thunder is expected. As the front edges east, it should bring widespread showers with southerly winds producing gusts during the shower activity. Some gusts could possibly reach 30 to 40 miles per hour, forecasters predict.
According to the NWS, today’s temperature is expected to reach about 70 degrees and sustainable winds should be around 10 to 14 miles per hour. The chance of rain is 80 percent.
Showers are expected to linger this evening and a 30 percent chance of rainfall will remain overnight, the NWS reports. As showers decrease, temperatures are expected to decrease as well. Forecasters expect overnight lows to dip down near 41 degrees, with a west wind between 3 and 7 miles per hour.
Much cooler weather is expected Tuesday, with the high expected to reach only about 63 degrees. A west wind between 10 and 13 miles per hour is expected during the day on Tuesday, with gusts up to 24 miles per hour, according to the NWS.
