Even though a weak cold front is edging its way into the area from the northeast today, we’re still enjoying an incredibly mild and pleasant Friday afternoon with abundant sunshine and very light winds. High temperatures will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s this afternoon, so we’re finally reaching the seasonal average for this time of the year and that’s something we hadn’t done so far this month.
Warmer air will continue to blow into the region for Saturday, but it will be a cloudier, breezier day with southeast winds occasionally reach 25 miles per hour. High temperatures will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s with wind chill values in the mid and upper 20s because of the blustery conditions.
A storm system from the northern Plains will bring a chance for a wintry mixture of sleet, snow, and rain to the area late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Snowfall accumulation right now looks pretty light for Sunday morning, generally less than an inch in the area. We’ll have a breezy, gray day Sunday with afternoon high temperatures again the seasonable upper 30s.
Our temperatures next week will continue to be in that same seasonably cool range as upper 30s and lower 40s are expected just about every day while another couple of storm systems bring smaller chances of light rain and snow late Monday and then again next Thursday.
