After the weekend chill, temperatures have recovered somewhat but are still at frosty levels. Wind will continue to come from the north at 10-15 miles per hour leaving us a little on the breezy side.

The models have done a particularly poor job of forecasting the cold weather in the long range - initially, it looked like November would be on the warmer side of average.

Forecasters expect near seasonal temps in the 30s 40s for most of the week with showers possible Wednesday, otherwise dry. Most of the area will not see measureable accumulation.

Rain is on its way out this afternoon but cloud cover will linger. The timing amounts and all the details will be ironed out in the coming days. Tuesday will be mild with highs up in the mid 70s.
