Last Week (1/29-2/4): Weather Underground has been pretty much recently, and so it was last week. As expected, we had warm weather early in the week, reaching or breaking records for high temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday. Also, as expected, a cold front rolled in on Thursday, with rain and wind, followed by a steep drop in temperatures on Friday overnight.
This Week (2/5-2/11): Expect chilly temperature for the entire week – 60s for highs and 40s for lows. A freeze is unlikely.
