Yesterday’s cold front is living up to its name, we get Thursday going in the 30s and 40s. Yes, with plenty of dry air in place, we’ll see lots of sun but it doesn’t mean we’ll have a warm afternoon. A north/northwest wind will continue to gust near 20 mph through lunch leading to highs in the upper 50s. This evening, the wind will calm down while skies stay clear setting the stage for a cold night ahead. Lows will flirt with freezing tomorrow morning; a freeze watch is in effect for the entire area away from beaches and cities. Freezing temperatures for 2-4 hours will be most dangerous to sensitive plants, bring em in! We’ll stay chilly to get February going tomorrow with highs in the low 60s lasting through the weekend with lows in the 20s & 30s. This extended forecast has me issuing a **CAR WASH ALERT**, we’re not looking at any rain until at least Tuesday, and even then it won’t be much. That said, pollen levels are still at medium levels, so even after you wash your car it may quickly get covered in a film of yellow dust.

-Be safe and have a great Thursday!
