Skies are cloudy early on this Monday morning and there is some light rain and drizzle falling. Temperatures range from around 32 in Clifton down to the mid 20s further inland. In areas that are at or below freezing the precipitation is freezing rain, so be careful as untreated roads and sidewalks may be icy.
The precipitation will change to liquid rain before ending this morning as temperatures rise above freezing. There may be some peeks of sunshine this afternoon with temperatures rising into the mid 40s.
A cold front will come through tonight, temperatures will fall down to near 20 degrees by daybreak on Tuesday.
Tuesday will be a chilly day despite having plenty of sunshine as high pressure builds over the area.
Another low pressure will likely give us a round of precipitation Wednesday afternoon through Thursday. At this time it appears precipitation will start off as snow Wednesday afternoon, mixing with sleet and freezing rain in the evening, and to all rain on Thursday as temperatures rise to well above normal.
Dry with seasonably mild temperatures are expected on Friday.
Another storm system will give us a chance of precipitation over the weekend, but at this time temperatures will be mild enough so whatever falls will be in the form of liquid rain.
