Freeze Warning tonight with record lows (10/17/22)
Colder weather is upon us with overnight lows into Tuesday morning getting as low as the mid 20s. A Freeze Warning has been issued for Monday evening until 9 a.m. Tuesday for temperatures that will create hard freeze conditions, likely being below freezing for hours.
With the colder air being pulled from the Arctic to the north, records in terms of low temperatures could be broken over the next couple of nights. The best chance to break records across multiple sites is heading into Wednesday morning, where temperatures will be the coldest. Winds out of the north and northwest will continue to transport colder air into our area through Tuesday.
As a result, temperatures will struggle to climb into the 50s for most of our coverage area, as winds continue to gust anywhere from 20 to 30 miles per hour. Even as we struggle to see temperatures in the 50s, the breezy conditions will make it feel cooler for the middle of October.
Widespread frost is possible both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, but temperatures will warm toward the end of the week. We will likely be back in the 70s by Friday as the longer forecast remains quiet in terms of seeing precipitation. For now, we will continue the roller coaster of temperatures that the season of fall brings.
