Rowan weather: Get out your parkas

Enjoy today — it’s going to be the last warm one for a while.

Mostly sunny skies will allow the temperature to rise to 69 degrees, and tonight the low will be around 44, with light winds from the north northeast.

There’s a 20 percent chance of rain tomorrow morning, and a chance of patchy fog. Skies will be mostly cloudy with a high around 52. Thursday night, we plunge down to the freezing mark.

And you’re going to really feel the cold Friday, when the high will be 45 degrees, despite sunny skies. Wind will blow from the north at about 8 mph. Friday night will be extremely cold, with a low of 23.

Saturday will be sunny, but only 46, with a low around 30.

Sunday we have a 50 percent chance of rain and mostly cloudy skies, with a high around 48. The chance of rain continues Sunday night, with a low near 36.

Monday’s chance of rain is 30 percent, with partly sunny skies and a high again near 48. The low will be very cold again, around 28 degrees.

We get sun on Tuesday, but another high of just 47 degrees.

It’s definitely time to dig out the winter clothes and put short sleeves away.
