Temperatures are predicted to drop slowly to the mid or upper 50s by nightfall Saturday evening and stay in the 50s on Sunday. The 72-degree high last Mother’s Day is to be but a distance memory.
A late season frost threat looms Sunday night with temperatures settling into the 30s overnight.
But a dramatic rebound is expected next week. Southwest winds will drive temperatures into the low 70s Monday after a morning of 30s. They are likely to climb well into the 80s Tuesday and Wednesday, and a 90-degree reading isn’t out of the realm of possibility on either day.
Powerful thunderstorms could sweep the area late Wednesday or Wednesday night with the approach of a new cold front.
