Rowan weather: Cold morning; warm week

It was surprisingly cold this Monday morning, with a low around 34. Some people may find ice on their windshields, too.

But it will be sunny and 70 with west wind around 6 mph this afternoon. Tonight will be clear and not as cold, with the low around 44 and light south southwest winds.

Then each day this week will be warmer than the previous one, until we get to the weekend, when there’s another chance of showers.

Friday will be mostly sunny and 86 — time for shorts and flip flops. The low will be 63.

The Saturday will be mostly cloudy and 82, with a 30 percent chance of showers. The low will be 60, with the same 30 percent chance of showers.

Sunday brings another 30 percent of showers, but it will be partly sunny and 79.
