Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that gusty winds and chilly weather will be in place for Tuesday.
Tuesday morning starts with clear skies and wind chills down in the 20s and 30s. Afternoon highs will climb to near 60 with sunny skies. North winds will gust to around 35 mph, but should begin backing down toward evening.
Look for another chilly start to the day Wednesday, but in the afternoon, highs will reach the 70s. More sunshine is expected midweek with west-southwest breezes.
Much colder air will arrive for the end of the week with a hard freeze likely statewide Friday and Saturday mornings. We don't expect any moisture with the big drop. It's time to start winterizing things around the house.
