“The last time we saw 40s for high temps was in April,” the NWS posted on social media.

Along with the colder weather there will be chances for rain to mix with snow at times through Wednesday.

It will be cloudy and blustery today with a slight chance of rain and snow showers between 10 and 11 a.m., followed by a slight chance of showers after 11 a.m.
