UPDATE: Tuesday weather

January 28, 2013

It will be MUCH colder on Tuesday than it was on Monday with high temperatures only warming into the mid 40s to the lower 50s by late day. Granted, that's roughly about what you would normally expect for high temps for this time of the year (52 is the 30-year average high temperature for Tuesday), but compared to the 60s and 70s we've seen lately, Tuesday is going to feel MUCH colder! Winds will be breezy as they blow from the west during the morning, then the north during the afternoon at speeds averaging 15-25 mph with some gusts upwards of 35-40 mph possible.
