As we head into the overnight hours, temperatures will actually warm. A warm front will lift northward and we’ll start to see a little precipitation ahead of a low pressure system. The best chance for sleet or freezing rain looks to be west of I-95. Everyone else should just see rain as the winds shift from the south and temperatures begin to warm.

Saturday won’t be a complete washout. We will see a break from the rain in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 60s. It will be on the breezy side with winds out of the SSW 10-20 +.

A cold front will then move through the region Sunday bringing rain. Temperatures will be very mild in the lower 70s. Colder air will move in Sunday night and Monday morning. We could see a wintry mix late as temperatures cool. Much colder temperatures on Monday with highs in the low to mid 40s.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Not as cold. Temperatures will rise overnight. A chance for freezing rain, then rain as temperatures warm. Low temperatures in the upper 20s and lower 30s early. Winds: S 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Chance for freezing rain or rain early (30%). Otherwise, more clouds than sun. Warmer. Windy. Highs in the low to mid 60s. Winds SW 15-25 mph, gusts to 30.

Tomorrow night: Mostly cloudy and breezy. Lows in the upper 50s. Winds:
