Midnight Update:  Temperatures have already been falling into the low to mid 20s as of 11pm, with overnight low temperatures expected to fall into the upper teens and lower 20s!  This will be the coldest temperatures we've experienced so far this season.  We haven't been this cold since March 22nd of this year, when the morning low temperature was 19 degrees.  Mostly sunny skies continue for Wednesday with a light breeze, and high temperatures around 40 degrees.  Temperatures get back to around 50 degrees on Thursday with mostly sunny skies, as high pressure builds to our east, and turns our surface winds from the southwest.  More seasonal temperatures return for Friday with partly cloudy skies, and a high of 55 degrees.  Temperatures get back in the upper 50s to lower 60s this weekend, with scattered rain showers possible.
