Wind sticks around Thursday as temps warm

If you are growing weary of the recent chill, better days are ahead.

Though Wednesday's storm system is well off to the northeast over the Atlantic, we will still have wind gusts at times Thursday.

ABC11 Meteorologist Don "Big Weather" Schwenneker says the wind will be nothing compared to the gusts that peaked over 35 mph at times yesterday, but enough that it will feel a little cooler than it actually is.

"Our temperatures are down in the 30s starting off this morning, but with sunshine and only patchy afternoon clouds, temperatures today will rise into the middle 50s," he said.

Any evening clouds will crumble and set us up for another clear cold night tonight. Temperatures will fall to about 30 degrees.

Schwenneker says the storm over the Atlantic will stall out for a time Thursday night into Friday and a north to northwest breeze will once again keep temperatures from rising above the middle 50s Friday, even with plenty of sunshine.

"As the storm slides farther out over the Atlantic and high pressure builds eastward, sunshine and the absence of much wind will allow readings to rise into the low 60s Saturday," he said. "That will be our first day of 60 degrees or higher this month."

Temperatures only go up from there on Sunday and Monday as high pressure slides to the east and a cold front approaches from the west.

We should have temperatures in the upper 60s Sunday to near 70 degrees on Monday with sunshine and some clouds.

However, that approaching front will likely bring some wet weather later Monday night and Tuesday morning. As the front moves eastward, cooler and drier air will follow for Wednesday and Thursday.
