FORECAST SUMMARY

Our active weather pattern will continue heading into the weekend. Cloudy and chilly tonight with lows in the mid 30s.  Enjoy a dry day Friday, although still cloudy, with highs in the 40s.  The much talked about weekend storm will first bring steady and at times heavy rain Saturday, beginning in the morning.  

1-3” of rainfall possible, which could lead to some localized flooding.  The rain will turn to a brief period of a wintry mix Saturday evening, before turning to all snow later Saturday night.  With the wet roads and rapidly falling temperatures, flash freezing is likely, which will produce a thin layer of ice on road surfaces.  Light snow accumulations are expected during the overnight hours, with the snow ending around sunrise Sunday.  Expect slippery conditions Sunday morning, before the road crews can salt and clear the ice and snow.   

Clearing and very cold with highs in the low to mid 20s Sunday afternoon with single digit wind chills!   Staying very cold and dry for MLK Day Monday.  The next system will bring a rain/snow mix late Tuesday into Wednesday morning.  Colder air will settle in for the rest of next week, and perhaps the rest of the month!
