THURSDAY COLD FRONT

North and west of the front temperatures will struggle to get out of the 40°s and 50°s. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible, especially ahead of the front.
Once the front passes, winds will become strong – gusting 45+ mph – and shift out of the northwest. Temperatures will also begin to drop. Most of the area should be in the 30°s by Friday morning and high temperatures Friday should only be in the mid-40°s.
