From Meteorologist Eric Gardner:
High Today: 42
Winds: SE 10-15 mph

Skies will be partly cloudy today with milder temperatures just ahead of a strong arctic cold front that promises severe winter weather conditions late tonight and Tuesday.

Low Tonight: 8
Winds: N 20-30 mph

We're tracking a disturbance off the coast of California to move northeast into the area late tonight into Tuesday. Strong winds and snow will create poor travel conditions and dangerous wind chills.

The fast-moving storm will exit the area Tuesday night. Wednesday will be a frigid day, but a much warmer weather pattern sets in Thursday afternoon and lasts through the upcoming weekend.
