The weekend has been perfect thus far, but look for some pretty major changes as we wind up the weekend on Sunday. A very strong cold front will move through early in the day ushering in much colder temperatures and very gusty winds. Various watches and warnings involving high winds and fire danger have been issued for Sunday across the entire area. To see the most updated information click on the county specific information under the RSS Feeds on the upper left hand side of the screen just under the cover photo. That will always be the latest information from the NWS.
By Sunday night temperatures plummet to the low teens in the valley and from 0Â° to 5Â° in the mountains. Combine that with gusty winds, and wind chill values will drop below zero at many locations by Monday morning. After a cold day Monday, temperature moderate a bit later in the week with chances for rain in the valley and snow in the mountains.
