It's partly because of the time of year, and partly because of our geographic location, but we're about to go from one extreme to another!
From the warmest day of the year so far in the low-mid 70s today, to the 30s tomorrow afternoon, then teens tomorrow night!
Forecast high today is 74, the record is 80. The forecast low tomorrow night is 17 (record low 8). So, we're going from near record highs to near record lows with rain and snow in between.
It's a strong storm system causing the dramatic change, but thankfully we're not expecting severe storms. However, winds will be gusting 20-45 mph (Wind Advisory likely) tomorrow afternoon.
The first map below shows the mild temperatures with rain and thunderstorms early Wednesday.
The next map shows the quickly dropping temps late morning into the afternoon, with a changeover to snow. Little to no accumulation is expected, the roads will just be wet.
Finally, there's the cold air in place as we dry out. Those new buds are going to freeze solid!
It stays chilly Thursday in the 30s, but we're back to the 50s Friday.
