Afternoon update: widespread frost ahead of a sunnier Tuesday


Morning showers left most of the region by midday, with sun and wind taking over in their wake. Gusts of around 40 mph this afternoon helped give temperatures a bit more bite to highs in the mid to above 40s. Those winds are easing tonight and not as strong on Tuesday. Otherwise, the conditions are rather seasonal.
