Good weather today, freeze Thursday

A nice day Wednesday for a winding road, a good motorcycle and some fun.

Looks like another day to save money on gas and have some fun on my Harley while taking care of business and enjoy the open road.

The temperature is in the high 40s as I write this at 0600 this morning and is expected to hit 60 by early afternoon with clouds, a little wind and stay in the 50s into the night before showers and even some thunderstorms move in around 7 p.m.

The thermometer is expected to start dropping around 1 a.m. Thursday, heading south into the 40s, the 30s and 20s by 5 a.m. with wind picking up and even possible snow showers in late morning with wind averaging in the mid 20 miles per hour range with gusts into the 30s, 40s and possibly 55 and  a daytime high of around 18 degrees.

We will go from from a springlike 60 degrees Wednesday to a subfreezing Thursday where blustery winds will drive the wind chill even lower.

By sundown Thursday, the low temperature is expected to approaching single digits, bottoming out around 4 degrees with a wind chill of zero or less.

The winds are expected to die down overnight Thursday and Friday is forecast to be partly cloudy with a high of 44 with lows above freezing and back up to 60 on Saturday and 67 on Sunday.

Precipitation chances Sunday are at zero with 20 percent chance on Saturday and 10 percent on Sunday.

So Thursday is set to remind us that this is February and winter and the weekend will bring Spring Fever back into our minds.

What a strange winter.

Then cold on Thursday and single digit temperatures Thursday night.
