It’s been cold, but it is warming, and it will continue to warm into the weekend. In fact it will get downright warm on Saturday, albeit it will rain quite a bit.
First things first: Light snow Friday morning, possibly ending as a little freezing rain, but don’t expect much. This will make for a messy commute. I am expecting a little either side of 1”at this time. This will end by mid morning.
Saturday: Cloudy, some rain/drizzle and low clouds around before sunrise, then cloudy, and damp but temps will be warming steadily throughout the day. They will peak after the sun sets. Highs should reach the upper 50s around midnight! Heavy rain will arrive in the afternoon with this system and will end after around 10 pm. This rain will cause some issues for localized, small stream and even minor ice jam flooding.
Sunday: A very nice, but blustery day. Highs will reach near 50 early on, but then grow colder Sunday night.
Next week: Mild Monday into the 40s, to near 50. Tuesday: still mild, but growing colder with rain arriving (snow in the mountains to our west), much colder after this system with another storm to watch towards the weekend. This last one could be quite wintery, but at the minimum it will usher in some very cold air once again.
Yup. It's cold! The sun is shining and the house is warm. So why complain? No reason for this is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice in it!
