Weather forecast: Some sun today ahead of showers and wind tonight

Watch for a few slick spots this morning thanks to clearing and temperatures that have quickly dropped below freezing.

A solid deck of low cloud arrived early Monday afternoon and really never left…until now. Finally, we have some sunshine to look forward to today! Don’t get too used to it. A cold front will head our way allowing for a quick increase in cloud cover, some showers, and a round of busy winds tonight into Friday.
