  • Temperatures are dramatically colder out of the door Thursday morning and it won’t be warming up that much.
  • The mountains are even seeing snow Thursday morning, with some high-elevation areas above 3,500 feet seeing a few inches adding up (only minor travel issues up there.)
  • Highs barely reach 60 degrees by the afternoon under a partly cloudy sky.
  • It gets even colder by nightfall as lows crash into the mid-30s areawide (near or below freezing in the mountains.)
  • Some frost will be out there for the next several mornings as the chill remains.
  • Temps slowly recover to the upper 60s by Sunday and more 70s are on the way next week.
  • Our next rain chances are coming early next week, and this could have an impact on viewing the solar eclipse. Hopefully we can get a few breaks in the clouds on Monday afternoon.
