A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
It was great to have sunshine Friday as temperatures topped the mid to upper 40s. Skies will stay mostly clear tonight with a low of 28. We are heading into a nice weekend with a warm up each day. Saturday expect highs near 60 with partly cloudy skies and breezy winds.
As high pressure quickly moves east and the next storm system approaches it will become quite windy on Sunday. Highs will reach the lower 60s before showers develop in the afternoon. Widespread rain can be expected Sunday night into early Monday as cooler air filters in. Monday look for temperatures in the 40s that will fall into the upper 20s behind the cold front. Our temperatures will be chilly mid week and gradually warm before the end of the week.
