The slow warming process we’ve been talking about all week continues today with high pressure bringing the prospect of sunshine and quiet weather to the region. Clouds will continue to slowly clear across the area with mostly sunny skies in store for much of our afternoon. High temperatures will be around 30 degrees, which is still cool by seasonal standards, but warmer than the last three days. A brisk west breeze will keep wind chill values in the teens and lower 20s.
Temperatures will remain steady tonight in the lower 20s ahead of a cold front that will graze our area to the northeast, but the only impact in our area from that front will be extra clouds for the early portion of our Friday. Sunshine will break through in the midday and afternoon again tomorrow, helping temperatures make their way well into the 30s with just a light north breeze. Overall, it looks like a very pleasant day across the area to round out the work week!
A storm system will move in for the weekend bringing clouds and gusty winds to the area Saturday. High temperatures will be in the upper 30s with southeast winds gusting to 25 miles per hour all day, making it feel like the 20s for the most part. Light snow will be possible late Saturday night, but only a light coating of accumulation looks likely at this point. Some of that snow may mix with a little rain or drizzle by early Sunday morning, so roads may be slick in spots to start the day. High temperatures in the afternoon will be in the upper 30s Sunday with mostly cloudy skies.
Our weather pattern will remain fairly active for next week with rain and very light snow showers possible Monday and again Tuesday and mainly overcast skies. Temperatures look halfway decent, though, with afternoon highs in the upper 30s to lower 40s expected and overnight lows will be mainly in the mid and upper 20s.
