THURSDAY: Gradual clearing, becoming windy and colder. High 45, northwest winds 10-20mph.
After receiving between .10 to .30 inches of rain earlier today, this evening is getting a break from the showers with cloudy skies and temps near 60 degrees. Most of us stay rain free through the rest of the daylight hours before showers return later tonight. Scattered rain showers mix with snow showers after 4am Thursday morning. Most of us will not see any snow accumulation, but a few ridgetops could see a slushy coating by daybreak Thursday morning. More importantly, we will need to prepare for windy and much colder conditions for the rest of Thursday. Northwest winds of 10-20 mph with gusts of 40 mph will occur Thursday with afternoon highs in the mid-40s.
Friday remains cold and breezy. Low temperatures for Friday and Saturday morning will drop into the 20s, so any potted plants that were set outdoors recently should be brought back inside. Saturday features lots of sunshine and seasonable highs in the upper 50s and Easter Sunday continues to look sunny with highs in the 60s.
