Hard Freeze Likely This Week, A Few Flakes Possible

Get ready to go on quite the temperature roller coaster this week as the season's first significant push of colder air is set to hit the area not once, but twice!

Mostly cloudy skies will continue today with a few light showers/sprinkles possible on and off. Better chances for more widespread showers will arrive later this evening as a piece of energy pivots around an area of low pressure in the Great Lakes region.

As you can see we experience a significantly cooler day on Tuesday with rain likely throughout the day. Temperatures will be held in the 40s throughout the day. A briefly warmer period is expected Wednesday into Thursday ahead of another powerful cold front that will significantly reduce our temperatures heading into next weekend. That is when a hard freeze is expected to occur (likely Saturday evening) and even a few isolated snow flurries will be possible on Friday. Thankfully, no accumulations expected.

This push of cold air will extend all the way down to Georgia and Alabama and as far east as New York by this upcoming weekend.
