Staying Cold, With A Wintry Mix Possible Late Friday
Midnight Update: Skies are remaining clear tonight, with temperatures already falling into the lower 20s. We have light southwest winds, which will keep our temperatures from being as cold as Thursday morning. However, we look to have morning temperatures in the teens, with mostly sunny skies and southwesterly winds helping temperatures reach 39 degrees by the afternoon. A wintry mix of snow and rain will develop Friday evening, which will continue into early Saturday morning, before transitioning to all rain through the day Saturday. Saturday morning low temperatures will be around 32 degrees, with afternoon high temperatures reaching 38 degrees. We may transition back to a light snow or flurries, as this weather disturbance departs on Sunday. After the chance for a wintry mix early Sunday morning, Sunday afternoon will feature mostly cloudy skies with a high of 33 degrees.
Morning low temperatures were in the single digits and lower teens Thursday morning, with below normal temperatures continuing through the extended forecast. Friday will feature increasing clouds through the afternoon, with a rain-snow mix developing Friday night. A cold rain is expected for Saturday, with a little snow possible early Sunday as the precipitation tapers off. Dry, yet chilly conditions continue for next week.
