Local Alert Forecast

Local Alert Weather Forecast, Tue., Sep. 2, 2014

Due to a cold front moving through the region associated with a storm system in British Columbia, expect gusty winds this afternoon and a chilly night. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s during the overnight hours. Wind gusts could reach up to 30+ miles per hour.

The first day of school is the coolest day on your extended forecast, we will see highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. It will be a chilly first day at the bus stop too! Still plenty of sunshine on the way though.

As of Thursday we start a nice warming trend to bring us through the weekend.

Have a great day!
