Rowan weather: Watch out for that wind

Another cold, damp morning should become a partly sunny day with a high near 52. Winds from the northwest at 5-11 mph will remind you it’s still cold. Tonight’s low will be 34, with more wind.

Wednesday should be sunny and near 50 and the wind will keep blowing from the northwest at 8-13 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Bundle up for a nighttime low of 28.

Sunny skies will only bring us up to 49 on Thursday, but the wind will be from the west at 3-8 mph and not as gusty. Thursday night’s low will be 28 degrees again.

Friday looks OK, too, with no mention of wind, sunny skies and a high near 51. The low will be 29.

Saturday promises sunny skies and a high near 54, good weather for dashing around trying to get caught up for Christmas. The low Saturday will be around 30.

Expect a high of 56 for Sunday, along with sunny skies, and a low of 32.

Monday is even a bit warmer, with a high near 57. It’s about time all this wet cold moved out.
