We’ll continue to have plenty of clouds through the early morning hours on Sunday as a warm front slowly lifts toward the region. There’s only a slight chance for a touch of drizzle or freezing drizzle in places later tonight. Temperatures will not drop much tonight with lows in the 20s to the lower 30s.
As the next storm system approaches, this warm front will continue to move into the region on Saturday. We’ll have a bit of rain and drizzle at times. Even though there will not be a lot of precipitation, some of this may freeze on untreated surfaces for a brief time. Temperatures will struggle to rise through the 30s on Saturday only reaching the lower 40s west of Route 219.
We’ll have a steadier and heavier rainfall ahead of the next cold front Saturday night into early Sunday. The rain may be heavy enough to bring flooding to some areas of poor drainage. Behind the front, clouds will break for some sunshine and a very gusty wind will develop for the rest of Sunday. Some wind gusts may reach above 50mph and a high wind watch is in effect for the entire region for Sunday into Monday afternoon. Highs Sunday will reach into the 50s but temperatures will start to drop during the afternoon; dropping enough that scattered rain showers could mix with snowflakes by the end of the day. Colder air will continue to move in for the beginning of next work week. We’ll have a blustery day on Monday with clouds, some sunshine along with the chance for flurries and snow showers. Highs Monday will be in the 30s with the wind making it feel colder than that. It will stay chilly on Tuesday with more clouds than sunshine and highs in the 30s. Another system may bring a period of light snow on Wednesday. Temperatures will hold in the 30s on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will stay chilly with a mix of clouds and sunshine and highs in the upper 20s to the lower 30s. It will even turn colder for the first weekend of March.
