National Weather Service Meteorologist Tara Golden said tonight could bring temperatures down to about 29 degrees.

“A cold front has moved in and is causing this weather to become colder,” Golden said.

But, don’t worry it won’t be here for long, Golden said.

“Things will warm back up around Wednesday with the lows being back in 40s,” Golden said.

The forecast has the high up to around 75 degrees, just in time for Easter Sunday services.

Davis said the weather is just in time for Easter.

“For most people it’s just an Easter cool spell we’re going to have,” Davis said. “It’s coming a little later than usual. Most people are already fooling with their plants, so it could set them back a little bit, but we hope not.”
