Mostly cloudy skies kept temperatures from dropping too much last night. As of 6:30 AM temperatures were around 31°. Light southwest winds will help temperatures climb to around 43° this afternoon, however only brief appearances by the sun will keep things from warming more.
Mostly clear skies are expected overnight. This will drop lows to around 29° with light southerly winds. The NAM Model says we drop to around 30° by 6 AM.
A bit of a warm up is expected on Saturday. Southerly winds will continue to bring in warmer temperatures as highs are expected to top out around 54° under mostly sunny skies.
Showers associated with a disturbance to the south will spread into the region Saturday night. Showers will likely linger into Sunday, bringing us much needed rain. Rain should limit Sunday highs to around 50°. Below is simulated radar from 6 PM Saturday to 6 AM Sunday.
A warm period is expected to start the work week. Temperatures should top out in the mid 50s on Monday, followed by around 60° on Tuesday. Mild temperatures are expected to remain in place before a cold front moves through on Friday morning.
That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
