This weekend’s clear skies are helping start and end the day on a cold note. Early morning lows are still expected to fall into the 30s through Monday morning. That’s thanks to clear skies and radiational cooling working at full speed.

Clear overnight conditions are helping warmer afternoon conditions free the atmosphere during the overnight hours. Slightly warmer overnight conditions are expected by the start of next week.
