Tracking rain and snowflakes but the weekend is looking dry….As we move through this Thursday evening, a lot of us will have to dodge some heavy rain, all courtesy of a cold front that is lingering offshore.  Some of the rain could cause ponding on the roads, so keep that in mind. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies, breezy winds from the north and chilly temperatures. Overnight lows will drop into the mid 30s.

Rain will linger into early Friday morning, but with temperatures starting the day in the 30s, some snow could mix in with the rain. At this time, we’re expecting little to no accumulation on the ground since we’ve seen so much rain recently. That will likely limit any snow that develops to accumulate except on some grassy surfaces, but we’ll keep an eye on it. Otherwise, as we go through the day on Friday, expect clearing skies and high temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds will continue to be breezy from the north between 10 and 20 mph.

This weekend, we’re expecting dry weather. In fact, Saturday brings partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s. By Sunday, highs will be in the lower 50s under a mix of sun and clouds. Rain moves back in next Monday and Tuesday.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Rain (80%). Breezy.  Low temperatures in the mid 30s. Winds: NE 10-20 mph.

Friday: AM Rain/Snow Mix (40%). Then, clearing skies. Breezy and Cold. High temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: N 10-20 mph.

Saturday: Sun and Clouds. Cool. High temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.
