Tracking sunshine, then possible snow flurries next week….Get ready for more sunshine! On Sunday, grab your sunglasses. We’re expecting plenty of sunshine as we go through the day. High temperatures will rise into the mid 50s. Overnight, low temperatures will be in the mid 30s. On Monday, we’ll see some sun between the clouds. But as a strong cold front moves in from the north, ushering in some of the coldest air of the season, some folks might see a couple of rain showers or snow flurries late in the day. Some bay effect snow flurries are possible, too. Right now, little to no accumulation is expected, but we’ll keep an eye on it for you. High temperatures will be in the mid 40s Monday. On Tuesday, under blustery conditions, temps will be in the upper 30s for highs. On Wednesday, high temperatures will be back in the upper 40s. Rain moves in by Friday.

Saturday Night: Mostly Clear and Cold. Overnight low temperatures in the low and mid 30s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Sunday: Mostly Sunny and Cool. High temperatures in the mid 50s. Winds: W/SW 5-15 mph.

Monday: Partly Cloudy. Late Day Showers/Snow Flurries (20%). Cold and windy. High temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Winds: N 15-25 mph, with higher gusts.
