Dry today but more rain and wind are on the way….As we move through our Saturday, we’re expecting a rather nice day. We’ll see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. High temperatures will be in the upper 40s to near 50. Tonight, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with overnight low temperatures in the 30s.  On Super Bowl Sunday, clouds will thicken as an area of low pressure moves up the coast. That low will spread some rain across the area, moving from south to north mainly by afternoon and evening. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies. Winds will pick up from the northeast between 15 and 25 mph, which could cause some minor tidal flooding around high tide. High temperatures will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

More rain moves in for Monday and Tuesday with another low pressure system. However, some of that rain could turn to snow late Monday night into Tuesday.  We’ll keep an eye on it over the next few days.  Highs will be in the 40s and 50s.

Today: Sun and Clouds. Cool. High temperatures in the upper 40s to near 50. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Chilly. Overnight low temperatures in the lower 30s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Partly Sunny. Chance of Rain (30-40%). Breezy. High temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Winds: NE 15-25 mph.
