Big weekend changes! Wet Friday, then COLD!

Big weekend changes!  Wet Friday, then COLD!

First up is the next cold front with periods of heavy rain arriving Friday.  Many areas could pick up another inch of rain over already saturated soil.  Flooding could be an issue, but severe weather is not expected at this time. 

The front moves south early Saturday, then the door is open to some really cold air.  

The first map below shows the rain over the region Friday afternoon, the second map is the total accumulation of rain, with heaviest amounts to our west.

The next maps show our temperatures Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 30-40 range Saturday, then 25-35 range Sunday! 

The following map shows a tight pressure gradient as well (black lines of equal air pressure), indicating breezy, blustery conditions - putting wind chills down to the 20s. High pressure to our west and low pressure to our east is sort of squeezing and funneling the air producing some gusty conditions.

Finally, it's all summed up in your 7day at the bottom.  Moral of the story - umbrellas and heavy coats into the weekend!  I won't call it frigid, but it's going to be rather cold.  It looks like the moisture is gone before the cold air arrives, so snow is not likely.
