Skies are mostly clear early on this Thursday morning and there is a big spread in temperatures with readings in the low 20s here in Clifton to some single digits in the colder valleys, winds are nearly calm.
I replaced the battery in my weather station’s outside sensor and now we are back online.
Today we should see an increase in clouds this afternoon, temperatures will be mild with highs slightly higher than yesterday and with light winds it will feel rather comfortable.
Friday will continue to be on the mild side but a weak disturbance will cause some light rain to develop after midnight which may start off as sleet or freezing rain well inland.
A chance of light rain will continue on Saturday with mild temperatures.
A stronger system will cause rain moderate to heavy at times Saturday night into Sunday, winds will become southerly with temperatures reaching the 50s before a cold front comes through late in the day.
Colder next week but not as frigid as we had early this week, at this time it will be mainly dry put there is an indication of a possible coastal storm around Wednesday to early if it will affect our weather but it will be cold enough for any precipitation to fall as snow.
