Once we get past Tuesday, we are tracking a big warm up! We will be back into the 70s and 80s by the end of the week. We are also giving a First Alert, for rain and storms that we are tracking Friday into Saturday.

Tonight looks to be the coldest night we are tracking as of late. Lows, area wide, will drop into the 20s and 30s under clear skies. Winds will be breezy out of the north around 5 to 10 mph. Frost is possible for some, but the winds will limit that potential.
