Enjoy One Last Mild Afternoon: the Next Week May Come as a Shock

A weak cold front early today dropped temperatures about 10 degrees over the Crossroads, but a much strong system arriving overnight will send the mercury to well below normal for several days to come. Also, look for widespread rain and a few thunderstorms tonight through Friday and again on Monday. Isolated to scattered showers can be expected over the weekend. Temperatures will be dramatically colder this next week, with highs generally in the 50s and lows in the 30s and 40s.
