EVENING: Cloudy and mild. A stray shower. Temps in the 50s.

TONIGHT: Warm and breezy with a stray shower. Temps in the 50s.

FRIDAY: Morning rain exits by 10am. Becoming windy and colder by evening. Temps dropping into the 40s.

Another band of showers is expected tomorrow morning as the cold front slices through next. Around 0.25-0.50″ of rain is expected from this system. This rain should exit the area by 10am and northwesterly winds increase for the afternoon. Friday’s high will likely be reached early in the day before temperatures tumble during the afternoon and evening as gusty winds pick up behind the cold front. Temperatures will start in the 50s on Friday with lows by Saturday morning in the 20s. A huge drop, but like the rest of this winter, the cold air won’t last.

We bounce right back into the 50s on Sunday and Monday and we stay mainly dry too (stray shower Monday). All in all, it looks like a pleasant long weekend, especially considering the time of year! The mild pattern looks to continue with no winter in sight.
