A few extra clouds will move into the region overnight Saturday and into Sunday morning. Lows on Sunday morning will be in the 20’s and 30’s. Temperatures will be a bit warmer than they were on Saturday morning, where temperatures were in the teens!
Temperatures will climb up the mercury as we head into Sunday afternoon. A few sprinkles or a light shower could occur during the day, but we may see a mix of rain and snow in the high mountains off to the west on Sunday afternoon and evening. Accumulations will be light in general, around 1-2 inches at most. The highest ridges in the Alleghenies may see 2-4 inches, but I think that maybe stretching it. Here in the valley, we only look to see liquid precipitation Sunday afternoon and evening.
The mini system will clear the region by midnight Monday. Clouds will try to break as we head into Presidents Day with highs in the afternoon going up into the 50’s. Be sure to get out and about and enjoy the holiday with an outdoor activity or two as we have a chance of rain Tuesday.
Rainfall amounts on Tuesday will be around a quarter to a half-inch. Things will begin to clear out on Wednesday, with temperatures falling into the 30’s for Thursday and Friday’s high. Lows Friday morning are set to be in the upper teens and low to mid 20’s. Thursday and Friday’s cooldown will be short-lived as temperatures rise into the mid to high 40’s by Saturday with partly cloudy skies.
