Tracking rain/snow mix, then a big drop in temperatures….As we move through this Saturday, expect clouds and sunshine across the area. It will be a bit mild today with highs in the upper 50s to near 60. A cold front moves in today, causing our highs to drop into the lower 40s by Sunday. Now, talking about Sunday, expect mostly cloudy skies and some rain. However, some snow could also develop as an area of low pressure passes by the area.  Little to no accumulation is expected since our temperatures should stay above freezing through the daylight hours, when this activity is expected to move in. We’ll start to see a bit more sun Monday and Tuesday, but it won’t be warm at all. High temperatures will only rise into the mid 30s! Enjoy your weekend!

Today: Clouds and Sun.  Mild.  High temperatures in the upper 50s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Chilly. Low temperatures in the mid 30s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Rain/Snow Mix (50%). Little to no accumulation expected.  High temperatures in the lower 40s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.
