Wed. will be windy & rather cool -- near 70 -- then temps. will plummet into the 30s by early Thu. & again early Fri. with highs inbetween -- on Thu. -- only near 60 degrees. Winds will be lightest Thu. night so the coldest temps. & greatest chance for some inland light frost will be early Fri. A nice warm-up for the weekend will push temps. well into the 70s.Our best view of the comet PANSTARRS
