After a very cold start this morning, temperatures will climb above average again today with highs reaching the mid to upper 40s. South and southwesterly winds will push temperatures into the 50s tomorrow, New Year's Eve and again on new Year's Day. But then it all changes. Old Man Winter has been hanging out in northern Canada and like most snowbirds...it's time to head south. Temperatures will start to drop on Monday and by the middle of next week, many parts of our area will have a hard time getting much above 32 degrees. This little cold snap will only be temporary, though.
