If you weren’t ready for December-like temperatures yet, we have good news! If you’re still waiting on that first fall rain/snow, well that part is the bad news. It’ll be another cold one tonight, with hard freezes across the region, but then expect a warming trend the rest of the week. No rain/snow events on the horizon, but also no major wind events once the current east winds subside Tuesday. It’ll be a great time to catch the last of the fall colors!
