Highs today will hit the mid to upper 40s. Tonight’s low will drop to near freezing under mostly clear skies. The arrival of the freezing air will come about 12 hours after the moisture exits.

While the rain will be a step in the right direction with regards to our ongoing drought, we’ll need a few more systems like this one to get back to normal.
