Tracking colder temps, along with rain and a little snow….Get ready for a quite ride with our weather over the next few days. We’ll start our Thursday morning with temperatures in the low to mid 30s. By afternoon, highs will climb into the mid 40s. We’ll see sunshine for the morning, but by afternoon and evening, clouds will increase and thicken as our next frontal system approaches from the west. That system will bring wet weather our way late Thursday night in form of rain first. But some snow will likely mix in with the rain overnight Thursday into Friday, especially for our inland and northern communities. Little to no accumulation is expected. Otherwise, expect rain for most of our viewing area during this event through Friday. High temperatures will be in the mid 40s. Drier weather moves in for Saturday and Sunday with high temperatures in the upper 40s on Saturday and the low to mid 50s on Sunday. We’ll be in the 60s next week.

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Cold. Low temperatures in the low and mid 30s. Winds: N 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Increasing Clouds. PM Rain/Snow (50%). Cooler. High temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: N-E 5-10 mph.

Friday: Mostly Cloudy. Rain/Snow Mix (90%). High temperatures in the mid and upper 40s. Winds: N 15-25 mph, with higher gusts.
