Rain comes to an end, but temperatures struggle to warm up
Temperatures gradually warm up by this weekend

(KSLA) — The weather soon will go back to being quiet and will be on a slight warming trend through the weekend. The strong cold front has passed and will pull the rain with it as it moves away. The sunshine will be back as we finish the week.

You will need to bundle up tonight! A widespread freeze is expected. Temperatures will continue to fall into the upper 20s and low 30s by morning. A heavy frost is also possible as skies clear and the wind dies down.

As you start your Wednesday, it will be nice and sunny. Temperatures will start off in the lower 30s. So, you will need a coat to keep you warm. Temperatures will warm up to the lower to mid 50s. The sunshine is a big reason for that. So, you will need your sunglasses too. It should be a nice day!

Thursday and Friday will have a few clouds at times, but I do not expect any rain. Thursday has a better chance to have a few more clouds, but by Friday, there should be more sunshine. Temperatures on Thursday will warm up to the upper 50s, while Friday will warm up to the lower 60s. It will be good weather to end the week on.

Over this upcoming weekend, the weather will be typical for mid December. Saturday will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy, but still not rain. Temperatures will rise to the mid 60s. Sunday, there should be a few more clouds, and I have a 10% chance of rain. Temperatures will warm up to the mid 60s.

Monday is when we are expecting our next cold front. This one will not be as strong. We will have a good bit of rain, along with maybe a storm or two. Temperatures will cool down once again by Tuesday next week to the lower 50s. At least we will have all weekend to enjoy before the rain returns!

Have a great week, and stay warm!
