Light rain will start mixing in later as temperatures go up, so after that, we should be in the clear. We’ll see a dusting of snow across the grassy areas at best, so this won’t be any sort of major event to write home about. Clouds clear out for a brief time tonight, enough to allow temperatures to fall into the 20’s.
Another brief round of high pressure will keep us quiet and dry as temperatures warm up toward the end of the week. The only catch is that clouds will quickly return Thursday morning and not go away anytime soon. We’ll be in the 40’s tomorrow before hitting the 50’s again Friday. There has been one notable change to the forecast for this weekend, as the speed of the next storm system has picked up. We’re still expecting a major surge of warmth and steady rain to move in on Saturday, with some wind as well. We’re watching for the potential of minor flood concerns as the rain could turn heavy and fall over a smaller time window Saturday but given how dry it’s been we can hopefully soak this up.
We’re going to have a smaller time window for this steady rain because by Sunday morning this storm system will be clear of the area. We should start seeing some sunshine before the weekend is over, which will be nice after days of cloudiness. Temperatures take a slight dip back into the 40’s, but it stays a little mild into early next week. High pressure will keep us sunny and in the 50’s next Monday and Tuesday as it lingers around.
Take it slow, enjoy the flakes, and have a great Wednesday!
