We enjoyed lots of sunshine across the region again today. It was slightly warmer with highs in the low 40s, although areas south & west with more snow on the ground still had highs in the upper 30s.
Clouds will increase tonight as a storm system approaches from the west. With temperatures near freezing overnight, the precip could start off as snow or a wintry mix after about 4AM. The light wintry mix will then transition over to light rain showers as temps on Sunday warm into the mid-upper 40s. It will also be windy Sunday with south to W/NW winds 15-25 mph and gusts to 35-40 mph possible.
Looking Ahead... The warming trend kicks into a higher gear heading into next week with highs in the low-mid 50s Monday... then into the upper 50s to mid 60s Tuesday through Thursday. Wednesday looks to be the warmest day at this point.
Low pressure and a cold front will bring a chance of rain showers by Wednesday afternoon/evening, perhaps even a few rumbles of thunder in some spots.
Thursday through Saturday look mainly dry at this point. A system will slide by just to the south on Friday, but for now I'm going to keep us dry... but it's something to keep an eye on if it tracks farther north. It will be rather windy Thursday. Temps cool Fri/Sat with highs closer to 50º. A slight chance of rain showers returns Sunday with highs in the low-mid 50s.
Have a great rest of the weekend! -Bill Graul
