WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: One more day of cold tranquility Wednesday


It was another day of below normal highs in the low 40s. Compared to yesterday, the lack of wind sure made a difference. Just a few high clouds obscured an otherwise clear sky. Enjoy these calmer moments as they are the calm before the storm. We’ve got precipitation moving in tomorrow night, then things get wild to end the week.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): It’ll be quite like today. Perhaps a touch milder and with less wind, and maybe the last best chance to get outside comfortably before Christmas. Clouds increase late. Highs are in the low and mid-40s.

Pollen update: Mold spores are low at 146.2 spores per cubic meter of air.

Rapid cooling: A flash freeze — where temperatures fall so quick that water on roadways freezes up — shouldn’t be a huge deal here with the late-week storm, although there is some potential for spotty issues. The Weather Channel has a nice video explainer about the phenomenon that is worth watching.
