Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast:
Clouds will build in tonight ahead of a cold front that is set to move across the area tomorrow. There is a slight chance of rain overnight, but most of the rain will hold off until after sunrise Friday. Even with the chance of a few showers tonight, precipitation will be rain, because temperatures will stay well above freezing.
Get ready for a soggy start to our Friday. The best chance for rain will be between 7 am and Noon. After that, it'll be a breezy. Winds will pick up out of the southwest between 10 and 15 mph. At least it'll be mild, as highs will reach the mid 50s!
It is looking like a 50/50 weekend. Expect a nice mix of sun and clouds on Saturday with highs in the lower 50s. Another chance for rain will move in Saturday night to Sunday morning. Some of us could even see some snowflakes in the mix. The highest chance of this happening will be inland. Clouds will clear out Sunday afternoon to evening. Highs Sunday will be in the upper 40s.
Sharply cold weather arrives late next week, as a powerful cold front ushers in a big pattern shift. Showers are likely on Tuesday, with the chance for some snowflakes in the mix on Wednesday and Thursday as that cold weather takes hold.
