After a nice Wednesday afternoon with sun & 40s to low 50s are felt, we will feel lows drop to between 40 & 45 this evening, before rising well into the 50s late tonight to around 60 Thursday!! Yes, you can thank a storm hooking to the north & west for the unseasonably warm air we experience through much of Thursday. We will begin to cool back to the upper 40s to around 50 with a brisk wind, though, by day's end behind a cold front. This cold front Thursday night will put the brakes on, as an area of weak low pressure develops along it. At this point, it looks like the small wave will produce a little shot of a mixed bag, & maybe even a little rain, especially south & east, at the onset before pretty quickly transitioning back to snow for much of Friday morning. A minor accumulation of wet snow appears probable for the first half of Friday, but that should do it. Friday afternoon the snow should go away & readings will remain in the 30s. The weekend temperatures will be mainly in the 20s with intervals of sun & a brisk wind expected Saturday & increasing clouds with a little snow possible late in the afternoon.
The storm system that looks like it's going to affect us late Sunday through Monday morning will provide some precipitation, but the big question is what type? The precipitation should begin as a little snow to end Sunday & then after minor accumulations of snow late Sunday through early Sunday night, a changeover to an icy mix will probably occur late Sunday night & then could very well flip to all rain by sunrise Monday. If the projected storm's track changes then a change in the precipitation types & amounts will have to be introduced. We will keep you all posted right through the weekend with updates.
Have a great day & enjoy the nice weather out there this afternoon!
