The sun was a sight for sore eyes today, but the chill was a bit of shock. Temperatures held in the 30s with a blustery wind from the northwest. Winds ease some and the mercury rebounds some Saturday. Then a big cold front sweep through Sunday, with moderate temps but a ramp up in wind speeds.
Through Tonight: Clear skies and diminishing winds allow temperatures to tumble. Lows range from the upper teens to near 20 in the colder suburbs to the mid-to-upper 20s downtown.
Saturday and Saturday night: Sunshine and a breeze from the south (increasing to 10-15 mph) help temperatures recover from very cold morning lows. Highs eventually reach the mid-to-upper 40s (maybe 50 just south of town). Mostly clear Saturday night and not as cold with lows 30-35 (suburbs-city).
Sunday: The Arctic front presses through the region, but temperatures probably make it up into the mid-40s before they reverse course late in the afternoon and particularly at night. Winds increase from the southwest and then northwest at 10-20 mph, with gusts to 30 mph possible. Sky conditions are generally partly sunny.
Australia heat: Sydney set a stunning all-time record high temperature today, soaring to 114 degrees. More info from AccuWeather.
