Temperatures to fall, rise this week

Weather might see a bit of a yo-yo effect in the upcoming week as temperatures jump and fall from the upper 40s to 70s.


Lows tonight are expected to fall into the middle-20s, around 15 degrees lower than the previous night.

Meteorologist Gregory Lamberty, of the National Weather Service, said the drop is due to a cold front moving down from the north.

“The summer-like temperatures aren’t going to be back for at least a couple of days,” Lamberty said.

Winds between 10-15 mph will begin to pick up this afternoon helping to drop temperatures tonight.

However, the low should not have an effect on Wednesday temperatures, which are expected to be slightly higher than today’s higher temperature.

The slight warming trend is expected to continue throughout the week with highs reaching into the low 60s on Friday.

However, rainy weather Friday and a cold front pushing through on Saturday will force temperatures down into the upper 40s to low 50s during the weekend.

The warm weather will make another return appearance in the last week of January with temperatures expected in the low 70s.

According to National Weather Service data the normal average for the last weeks of January are highs in the upper 50s and lows in the lower to middle 30s.
