Today will be quite beautiful. Southerly winds around 5 to 15 mph will usher in much warmer temperatures across the region under partly cloudy skies. Highs will approach 60°!
Rain will begin to work into the region tonight. Lows will drop into the mid 40s.
A rainy, chilly day is expected Saturday. Highs will remain in the upper 40s across the region. Heavy rain will move into the region Saturday afternoon and remain in place for much of the evening. We’ll need to continue to watch for a period of freezing rain or drizzle late Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
More rain is expected Sunday. This time, temperatures will be limited to the upper 30s. We’ll need to watch for yet another period of freezing rain Sunday night into Monday morning as lows drop into the mid to upper 20s.
As of now, it looks like the zone for best ice potential will be to the north and west of us Saturday night and then to the south and east of us Sunday night. I’ll continue to monitor this over the next couple days. Have a great day!
