Daily Weather Briefing for Martin Luther King, Jr Day 2020




Outlook

A cold front will cross the forecast area tonight, ushering in cold Canadian high pressure for most of the upcoming work week. Expect this high pressure to bring below normal temperatures to the region. The next front with low pressure will not approach the area until the end of the week.






News Brief

The news brief is too long to include in the daily weather briefing, so a separate article has been published.
