DOWNTOWN — The city will get a day of warmth before cooling down again this weekend.

Thursday will get as hot as 63 degrees, said Brett Borchardt, a National Weather Service meteorologist, though the day will be cloudy with a southern wind.

The city will get chillier after that, though.

“Friday, Saturday and Sunday are gonna feel a lot different than what we’re used to this week,” Borchardt said.

Temperatures will dip Thursday night, hitting just the 40s on Friday, Borchardt said.

Saturday — when there’s a chance for snow — and Sunday will be even colder, with expected high temperatures in the 30s. That’s “unseasonably cool,” Borchardt said.

There’s hope for next week as temperatures should warm back up to the 40s and 50s, Borchardt said.
