The low pressure area that gave us the cool and dreary weather yesterday is moving off the coast as high pressure builds from the west. Skies will become mostly sunny this morning but it will become windy and colder with temperatures falling to the low 30s by sunset and into the 20s later tonight. Winds will be quite strong with gusts to 35 mph which will make it feel even colder.
Skies will become cloudy on Saturday and it will remain quite chilly with diminishing winds. A weak disturbance will give us a chance of snow showers with little or no accumulation.
Sunday will be mostly sunny and milder with highs approaching 50 degrees with a light westerly wind as high pressure builds into our area.
Another storm system will give us rain and snow Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning, too early to tell if we will get any accumulating snow.
After a dry Wednesday still another storm will give us a chance of rain on Thursday.
