Things are starting cold around the state as the mostly clear skies overnight have allowed us to cool down to freezing and below. Due to the 5-10 mph wind this morning, wind chills are running in the 20s, teens, and even single digits (I’m looking at you Monticello).

Sunday will not look as pretty as Saturday, but we’re still banking on an outdoor forecast. Temperatures get a boost from the freezing mark up to the middle 50s this afternoon. This is, in part, due to a mostly sunny morning. However, it’s the breezy southwesterly wind that will really ramp things up in the temperature department. Clouds will increase through the day as the next rain-maker draws near. Showers will hold off though until after midnight for most, meaning you get another outdoor weather day. Rain will roll through tomorrow, as widespread light to moderate showers. Rain amounts will run between a quarter of an inch to above a half inch in most locations. Some spots may make it to the 0.75” mark as well. Regardless, this is not a significant rain producer and flooding is not expected to be a major issue. Due to already high water, some streams and creeks could overrun banks, but rivers should mostly be fine. Rain winds down midweek and temperatures plummet. Expect a cold and mostly cloudy end to the week with a small chance for rain and snow showers each day.
