Temperatures this weekend officially fell below freezing as of Saturday morning as our low temperature bottomed out at 28 chilly degrees! This officially signals the end of the growing season for the year. Thankfully the coldest part of this airmass has already moved off to the east of the area which means for Monday we’ll be warming up in quite a big way.
Winds will be very strong today and these conditions paired with the dry ground and leftover vegetation will create ideal fire conditions outdoors. The National Weather Service has hoisted a Red Flag Warning for the area which basically means all outdoor burning should be avoided for a good part of the day. Any fires that do start will spread dangerously fast with the strong winds and dry conditions.
Temperatures will be way above average with highs in the middle 70s expected.
Our above average temperature pattern still looks to last the entire week with only a couple small chances for precipitation. Join us Tuesday morning as we detail when the drops might fall.
