Another rainy night before it gets windy and cold

Looks like it will be another rainy evening before the winds kick up and send the temperatures dropping below freezing.

Expect showers throughout the evening with the chance of precipitation at 70 percent. The rain should taper off by 7 a.m. Tuesday morning. But don’t expect the sun to shine for another couple of days as the clouds will hang around until Wednesday night.

A cold front moving through the area will bring winds of 20 mph with gusts as high as 35 mph. With a high temperature barely reaching above 40 degrees, the winds will make it feel more like below freezing. Brrrrr.

Residents will wake up Thursday morning with temperatures near 29 degrees.
