Buckle up, as we will be on a downward temperature trend through the week. Starting out the week, Monday will be breezy with showers possible as an upper level system moves past pulling down colder air. Winds will be sustained from 25 to 35-mph with gusts up to 45-mph possible. Due to these breezy conditions, a wind advisory has been issued from 1pm to 7pm Monday.
On Tuesday, our first shot of cold air along with breezy conditions, will enter the state, which will drop highs into the 40s and 50s. Temperatures will rebound to normal for Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the 50s and 60s. A second low pressure system will drop into the region for Friday through the weekend and this system will bring widespread highs in the 40s through at least Saturday.
Lows at night will drop below freezing across the west Thursday night and across most of the state Friday night. In addition to the below freezing overnight lows, winds will be brisk, which will make it feel much cooler, possibly into the teens by Saturday morning.
Precipitation is possible with the end of the week system and that will fall in the form of rain during the day but at night, we could see light snow north with rain/snow mix, mainly north of highway 20.
