COLD FRONT(S)

Two fronts will pass in the next 24 hours driving temperatures down for the open of April.  A chill overnight with a low in the middle 40s is more in line with this time of the year but a bit of a sting after the warm close to March.  March 2016 will enter the record books preliminary as the 8th warmest ever - only two years after the warmest March in 2012.

 

PREPARE FOR A CHILL

Frost and freeze advisories will be issued for the weekend after a new cold front passes Friday.  Showers are possible in scattered fashion Friday afternoon and evening.  The cold settles in to start the weekend and the coldest night will be Saturday into Sunday morning.  Area-wide temperatures are expected to dip well into the 20s by Sunday morning, hard freeze levels.
