Kristen’s Tuesday Morning Forecast

Near record heat before big cool down arrives...

TUESDAY: A chilly but quiet start to the day with most of us walking out to 20s, 30s and 40s under a clear sky. High pressure overhead will lock out all moisture, leaving behind a clear, sunny sky. Temperatures will skyrocket above seasonal averages with some even likely to near (if not, top) current records. Winds will stay light (10-15mph) and no rain is expected within statelines. Needless to say, today will be a fantastic day to get outdoors!

WEDNESDAY: Another day of mostly to partly sunny conditions and above average temperatures expected… but enjoy it while it’s here because changes begin moving in by late day. Winds will begin to pick up ahead of a strong Pacific cold front barreling in from the northwest on Thursday.

THURSDAY: A rough day! Expect winds to crank across the state with the strongest and potentially damaging winds found in and around the higher terrain stretching into the Plains. Temperatures will begin to fall with afternoon highs down +10° from earlier in the week. There is potential for light snow for the higher elevations of the Northern Mountains, however, accumulation is likely to be light. Freezing temperatures are expected nearly statewide Thursday night into Friday morning.
