Good morning, y’all! Today’s weather and this weekend are going to look a lot different than what we saw yesterday. As a reinforcing cold front moves through the area, temperatures this morning will continue to drop into the 40’s, recovering only slightly throughout the day. Rain looks to move in from the west this morning, but will taper off by early afternoon. Along with the cooler temperatures and rain, it will also be very windy today due to a strong pressure gradient. Once the rain tapers off by this afternoon, we’ll be left with partly cloudy skies across the area.
