-- Changed Discussion --
Another clear and crisp start to the day although not as cold as yesterday morning. Expect daybreak temps to be somewhat variable in the mid 30s to mid 40s depending on urban/rural/valley/hilltop location or influence of light west wind. Frost is possible in a few spots but should be much more limited in coverage compared to yesterday. Temperatures will rebound comfortably into the 65 to 70 degree range by the afternoon with plenty of sunshine. Another clear and cool night with mins in the mid to low 40s.
