There was a bit of excitement this morning as a few squalls set up behind a cold front moving through the area. This meant some brief rain or even graupel — snow pellets/soft hail — as the front quickly passed near sunrise. After that, there was loads of sun, but also whipping winds that kept readings in the mid-40s feeling more like the 30s. Winds have weakened off their gusts of 40 to 45 mph, but they’ll stay feisty into Saturday.
