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.

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.
