It was our 27th straight warmer-than-normal day as temperatures soared into the upper 50s. Such days might be numbered for a while, so I do hope you had a chance to enjoy it. A line of gusty showers is likely to sweep through the region this evening as a cold front swings by. It will deliver much colder, January-like air tomorrow as well as windy conditions.

Through tonight: Clouds increase this evening as a cold front approaches. We may see some showers blow through from mid-evening until about midnight. They could be briefly heavy but shouldn’t amount to much, in general. Winds kick up out of the northwest, with some gusts over 30 mph possible. Lows are mainly in the mid- and upper 30s.
