A strong polar cold front is barreling its way into the region this evening. Although we’ll have the presence of thin cloudiness, we’ll transition into a clearer trend overnight as winds pick up from the north. Gusty conditions are likely overnight through most of Wednesday with lows falling to around 40° by sunrise. The blustery wind flow and associated cold air will cause temperatures to struggle to climb toward 60° in the afternoon despite full sunshine. Only far southern counties have a good chance to reach the lower 60s. Freezing temps and fronts are not likely in the local area tonight, but we may experience up to four hours of temperatures around 28° to 32° away from the coast on Thursday morning. A freeze warning will be in effect for that time frame. Afterwards, southeast winds will usher in warmer conditions, more moisture, and increasing rain chance for the end of the week.
