Much of the midstate saw a short period of snow and mixed precipitation Friday afternoon before changing over to rain. Rainfall totals exceeded 1 inch in many locations, with some seeing as much as 1.5 inches and even a few flashes of lightning overnight. The slug of moisture has moved out of the area and things can begin to dry out Saturday morning. Winds will pick up early Saturday and remain very windy through the day with sustained winds 20-25mph and gusts as high as 40mph. Temperatures remain in the mid to upper 40s all day making things feel cool and damp early.

Sunday will be sunnier with less wind and even a few degrees warmer. Expect highs in the low 50s both Sunday and Monday before temperatures cool back down to seasonable levels for mid to late week. No major precipitation is in the forecast this week with our next chance of rain only being a few showers Monday into Tuesday as the cooler air works in. We’re keeping an eye on a storm system next weekend which at this point looks to bring some rain showers on Saturday. We’ll have more details as we get closer.
