It’s going to be a perfectly nice day. We’ve got two more of these before conditions change dramatically.

The National Weather Service forecast calls for a high near 55 degrees with sunny skies. The overnight low will be around 31 degrees.

Wednesday should be even nicer, with a high near 62.

But starting overnight Wednesday into Thursday, a major cold front moves in. First we’ll see rain, then snow, with gusty winds. The overnight low will be around 20 degrees, and the high Thursday will be in the mid 20s.

It’s going to actually be winter.
