Unfortunately, some western and northwestern areas will not see a drop. Highs will remain below average for the rest of the work-week, with temperatures ranging from the upper 40s to lower 70s. The coldest days will be Wednesday and Thursday. More sun will shine through on Friday, allowing more 70s to return to the area. Morning lows will continue to range from the middle 30s to the middle 50s.
This weekend, another pulse of cold air will enter the region. This will keep high temperatures in the upper 40s to lower 60s for both Saturday and Sunday. A few isolated showers will be possible Saturday into Sunday, but not much is expected at this time. Each morning, temperatures will be close to freezing. If you have pets or plants sensitive to freezing temperatures, be sure to bring them inside.
