Changes this weekend bring the sunshine to an end as the next big storm arrives. As for now, you can still see some blue out there, but high-level cirrostratus is moving in. Temperatures started in the teens and only made it into the low 30s this afternoon. Tomorrow, we start a warm trend with a great deal of rain headed our way.

We’ll be wrapping up the weekend with plenty of raindrops falling. Before we get there, we have one winter-weather hurdle to jump through. A small line of rain/snow mix or freezing rain will slide north with a warm front during the mid-morning hours. As it passes, light ice could touch down and a few flakes could fall as the rain starts. Accumulations are expected to be minimal or non-existent in most of the forecast area. Bigger impacts will be felt further west. The main form of precipitation will be rain through the coming days, and a lot of it! We’re looking at a rainfall potential of up to three inches in some locations with localized amounts to 4.” Up and down weather will continue through next week.
