We’ll have very breezy conditions today across the plateau. Wind gusts to at least 20 mph can be expected, though I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few reports of higher gusts. We will remain dry, though, so no rain worries to speak of. Later tonight, the rain moves in and we could even hear a rumble of thunder. It now looks like our chances of heavy rainfall have diminished somewhat. Clouds and showers will make for a rather gloomy Monday. I still think we’ll pick up at least an inch of total rain by Monday night. The front moves through early Tuesday and that will bring breezy north winds and temps only in the 50s. Clouds and lingering showers will only make it feel cooler.
Tuesday night he clouds break up and temps will plummet. We may get very close to our first freeze by Wednesday morning. It certainly looks like a heavy frost. After struggling to get to 50 degrees during the day Wednesday, overnight lows Wednesday night will be even colder, and I would be very surprised if we don’t get at least a light freeze.
We’re already seeing indications of an even colder air mass moving in here a week from today that may bring high temps only in the 40s. I’ll keep you posted! We’ve certainly entered a pattern change, folks, that is certain to usher in a change of seasons.
