Good evening everyone! Let’s discuss daylight time. We are currently 40 days away from the winter solstice, which is when our daylight starts to increase. However, we still have about 51 minutes to lose before then.
But enough of the bad news, let’s talk about the clear sky we have tonight. There are no clouds in the sky, although it’s dark outside, so there’s not much to see.
Temperatures are cooling off quickly, especially in the north-west where it’s chillier. In other areas, we’re experiencing temperatures in the 40s, which will drop to the 20s at times tonight.
The wind is calming down after being breezy earlier. Tomorrow, the wind won’t be as strong, making it easier to gather leaves and remove them from the yard. Tonight, it will be very cold outside, with temperatures in the low 20s in the Northwest Hills and the Northeast Hills. Other areas will experience temperatures in the mid to upper 20s, except for the shoreline, where it will be around 30°F.
Overall, it will be very chilly everywhere. In the next three days, we can expect colder temperatures, with highs in the 40s tomorrow, around 5 to 10 degrees below average.
However, there will be lots of sunshine and lighter winds, making it a good day to tackle the leaves. On Monday, there will be increasing clouds later in the day, and there might be a late-day shower or some sleet mixing in.
It will still be a cool day, cooler than normal. We start to see a turn upwards on Tuesday, although it will still be breezy, making it feel cooler.
High pressure will be moving out, and a weak system will swing through on Monday, bringing some brief showers. However, it will have very little impact.
This time of year, most days have had temperatures below average, with only a few days above average. That is about to change later in the week.
We haven’t had much rainfall so far this month, but that is expected to change with the increase in moisture later in the week, when we have our next storm system. We will continue to update you on that.
You can access this information on the go through the First Alert weather app. Now, let’s take a look at the first alert 7-day forecast.
Temperatures will remain chilly, below average, until Tuesday, with very cold overnight lows in the 20s for the next couple of nights. After that, we can expect a moderate increase in temperatures, reaching 60 degrees by Friday.
There is a possibility of a few showers late on Friday, and temperatures along the shoreline will remain much cooler than normal until Tuesday. However, everyone can enjoy a little warm-up from Wednesday to next Saturday. That’s your first alert forecast.
