After a prolonged cold stretch, some relief is finally on the way this weekend – but don’t get too used to seeing the sun we saw on Friday.
Temperatures rise overnight as clouds increase ahead of our next weather system. A bit of precipitation moves in on Saturday, beginning in the early morning as a bit of a wintry mix, including freezing rain, before changing over to just plain rain around 9 am as temps reach above freezing. Only a little ice accumulation is expected with this quick changeover, so do watch out for a few slick spots that may form on the roads early in the morning.
We start the weekend on a warmer note with highs climbing into the upper 40s Saturday afternoon under mostly cloudy skies. The chance for a few hit and miss raindrops will continue throughout the day. More scattered rain showers will be possible Saturday night into Sunday. Sunday looks to be even warmer with many places reaching the upper 50s! While the first half of the day looks mainly dry, periods of rain will arrive by late afternoon and evening. Some moderate to heavy rain will be possible through Monday morning. Some rain gauge totals of up to 1″ will be possible.
Our warm respite comes to an end on Monday with temperatures falling throughout the day. Another cold spell begins by the middle of next week and continues through the holiday.
