Dave’s Forecast: Temperatures plummet for Wednesday, with some precipitation
It's the most wonderful time of fear. I couldn't “scare less” about the cold creeping in. This forecast is “eerie-sistible!”
TONIGHT: Cloudy skies with a few sprinkles will take us through the night. Temperatures will begin to drop as cold Canadian air starts to rush in on those north winds. Lows tonight will be in the upper-30s.
WEDNESDAY: A few weather things to watch. No. 1 is a coastal system sliding rain showers up the coast. Occasional showers will skim the shoreline, otherwise expect clouds to hang tight. The second system is a storm in the Great Lakes. This will continue to move through, unraveling cold and instability showers as it passes.
Don't be surprised - it'll be a long shot but still a shot, that a few wet snowflakes materialize at points throughout the day. So the wet weather is going to deliver a wide array of fronts. Clouds/some sun/some sprinkles and some flakes. The winds are picking up so it's going to feel chillier. High: 48 (feels like 43).
WEDNESDAY NIGHT/ THURSDAY MORNING: Scary cold. Our first widespread chill with lows in the upper-20s and low-30s. The National Weather Service has issued a freeze watch for the majority of the state. Indoor pets should be brought inside and if you have any cold-sensitive plants still out, either wrap 'em up or bring 'em inside to protect them from the dangerous cold.
THURSDAY: Gorgeous! Mainly sunny and cool. High: 50 degrees.
FRIDAY-SATURDAY: Sunshine wins out as temperatures stay just slightly below average for this time of year.
