Southwest flow of mild air ahead of a cold front today will cause the temperatures to rise to near 60 degrees today. After a break in the precipitation this morning showers will return for this afternoon and evening however rain totals will be much less than yesterday.
The cold front will cross the area this evening with colder air filtering into our area. As colder air moves in the precipitation will change to snow after midnight and accumulate to 1-3 inches mainly on grassy surfaces as roads may just be wet or a little slushy. We should see some clearing later in the day.
Thursday will be a cold but dry day.
Friday will be a little milder it should be dry most of the day but another low pressure system will give us another chance of rain late Friday.
Saturday looks to be another rainy and mild day as the low pressure moves off the coast, the rain will end by Sunday morning.
