Much colder today but the 60s return with rain this weekend

Thursday: Sunny Skies; Much Colder

Highs: Low 40s | Wind: ENE 5-10

Overnight: Becoming Partly Cloudy & Cold

Lows: 20s | Wind: SSE 5

Friday: Partly Cloudy; Seasonable

Highs: Around 50 | Wind: SE 10-15

As expected, much colder air spilled in across the region during the overnight and while sunshine will be abundant our temperatures will only make it into the low 40s or{ }about 20 degrees colder than yesterday.

After another cold start to the day Friday temperatures will recover nicely and top out around 50 degrees during the afternoon. As our next storm system approaches the warming trend will continue Saturday with highs near 60 degrees and partly to mostly cloudy skies overhead. A few isolated and light showers can’t be completely ruled out later in the day Saturday but the rain becomes increasingly more likely during the overnight and throughout the day on Sunday. Additionally, the rain will be heavy at times with at least an inch of rain area-wide and some locally higher amounts of 1.5 - 2 inches. With that much rain in a short period of time conditions will have to be closely monitored for possible localized flooding or flash flooding. High pressure returns for early next before another system heads our way later in the week.
