It was a cold day around the area. The first with below-normal temperatures during the day in quite a while. Alas, overnight readings that were on the mild side mean this day probably goes down as another above-average one in the books. As is usually the case around here, more rain is on the way, as well.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): A few showers could linger into the early morning, otherwise skies are trending somewhat clearer with time. Temperatures should rise through the 50s in most spots. Perhaps warmer if we really optimize potential. Winds are out of the south and southwest, around 5 to 10 mph.

Roll cloud? A neat feature showed up in the skies of the Southern Plains today. It was probably a roll cloud of some sort, caused by air colliding along a boundary.
