A Quiet Thursday Rain Snow Showers Friday Weekend Looks Dry As Storm Passes South
Our winter storm is finally gone and we are going to catch a break today. We should see some sunshine most of the day. Temperatures will moderate somewhat this afternoon as highs reach the upper 30s to near 40 this afternoon. Once the wind finally dies off it should actually feel much less harsh. Clouds will be rolling in tonight as the next weather system and cold front approach on Friday
The satellite shows fewer clouds around today and the radars are finally getting a short break after days of dealing with the winter storm and the strong upper low that lingered for days.
As clouds increase tonight and winds go more west southwest and then southwest, temperatures won’t drop far as we bottom in the upper 20s and lower 30s in most places. Then on Friday the weak cold front approaches and moves through.
If precipitation gets here early enough in the morning there could be a burst of wet snow or sleet at the start. The best chances for that are inland. Otherwise there will be a few rain showers and then weather conditions will improve later Friday and Friday night. Highs will reach into the 40s before it turns colder again Friday night. Saturday we should see some sunshine with highs in the 30s to near 40 in some places. Sunday looked like another storm might head our way but it appears that the next storm system will pass to the south. Colder air is overwhelming the Great Lakes and Plains leaving little room for this system to move northward. Sunday looks like some sun but there will be high clouds around. We will keep an eye on the southern system in case it tries to climb but this now seems unlikely. It will turn colder for the start of next week. Look for sunshine on Monday but it will be cold with most highs in the upper 20s and lower 30s.
