Buckle up! We're riding the Thermal Roller Coaster over the Columbus Day weekend. Be prepared to change up the wardrobe.
A cold front moving through the region delivers mostly cloudy skies this morning. This afternoon into the evening hours we'll see skies begin to clear, going partly cloudy. High temps happen by mid-afternoon and will be more than 10 degrees cooler than yesterday, topping out in the mid 60's - right where they should be this time of year.
Break out the hoodies and windbreakers for this evening Friday night Frenzy at area high schools as skies clear, it get breezy and temps fall through the 50's during the course of the games. Temps bottom out in the mid 40's by daybreak Saturday morning.
Saturday will be mostly sunny and seasonable with highs in the mid 60's.
Sunday offers more sunshine and a dramatic warm-up with highs in the lower 70's.
Columbus day will be even warmer with highs in the mid 70's and a shot at scattered showers late in the day caused by another cold front ripping through. We're back into highs in the 60's next week.
Have a great weekend & enjoy your weather,
