Cold Today; Chilly Weekend

The cold front brought some snow to the region yesterday, as expected. It also brought some cold temperatures to the region. Temperatures in the upper teens at 9 AM should “warm” to around freezing by this afternoon despite sunny skies.

Clouds will be on the increase overnight as lows drop into the low to mid 20s.

High pressure will move to the east of the region on Saturday. This will signal the return of southerly flow to the region. Thus, we should see warming into the mid 40s despite mostly sunny skies.

Southerly flow will continue on Saturday as more moisture begins to work into the region. This should keep temperatures warm enough to remain all rain as of now. We also shouldn’t see any icing issues Sunday morning. According to the hi-res NAM we could see up to 1/4″ of rain.

Southerly flow will continue on Sunday morning ahead of an approaching cold front. This will warm temperatures into the mid 40s once again. Some moisture may work into the region Sunday evening, leading to another round of potential light snow.

That should wrap up this forecast. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great Friday!
