A temperature change Thursday morning brings an early chill that may feel a bit jolting, but it's the norm for this time of the year. It may feel cold at 34 degrees to start off the day, but we'll still warm up to near 60 degrees or slightly above.

The winds will push from the west at 10-15 mph. The bottom line is we've been so accustomed to unusually warm weather in the 60s and 70s and we're now being zapped back to climatological reality.
For Thursday night, the chilly pattern will continue during the overnight period. Temperatures will fall quickly into the mid to lower 40s as soon as the sun goes down. Ultimately, we'll fall to near or below freezing temps - well into the lower 30s statewide. Winds will shift from the north during the overnight period.
The seven day forecast gives you an extended look at the weekend and next week's temperatures.
As we wrap up the work week the start of Friday may have a bit of frost, so give yourself a little extra time to get going in the morning. Temperatures will start off below freezing and there will be enough moisture in the air to create frost on exposed windows. Temperatures will climb to the lower 50s; that hasn't happened for quite some time. For the first time in quite a while the afternoon high will be below the norm for this time of the year, but there's still no threat of precipitation in the forecast.
