11:45 am
occasionally, which may put a little dusting on the ground and make travel conditions slippery. we'll keep a close eye, but a chance for a few showers coming up for hump day. as far as winds go, a little lighter today than they were yesterday. coming up for tonight and tomorrow, those winds will be kicking up, around 15, 25, maybe up to 30-mile-per-hour gusts at times. a little breezier tomorrow. if we do get snow showers, that times. highs today where the clouds are, cooler. 40s up to the north. near 50 to lower 50s in areas south. mostly sunny, except in areas where the clouds have already been moving in. tonight temperatures falling into the low 30s tonight. winds out of the west at 5 to 10 miles per hour. the clouds are here, and they will be with us for the rest of the upcoming week. there are the chances for a few snow showers. breezy conditions, 38. 37 on thursday. a cloudy day again, and clouds
