UPDATE: Storms ending overnight as colder air approaches

Weather

STORMS ENDING EARLY
The severe threat ends after 2AM with the rain tapering off for the area. Skies will clear out a bit after the rain ends. Gusty wind is likely overnight. Between 11PM and 4AM, wind gusts in the range of 30 to 50 MPH are possible. After 4AM, the winds begin to die down a bit but gusts to 35MPH remain possible. Temperatures will drop overnight, falling to around 50° by 5AM.

FRIDAY FEATURES FALLING TEMPS, BLUSTERY WIND, AND SHOWERS
Temperatures fall throughout the day Friday, beginning around 50° and falling into the 30s by Friday evening. Temperatures bottom out around 30° by Saturday morning. Your Friday morning stays dry with some morning sunshine expected. Clouds will be on the increas through the afternoon and spotty showers are expected to develop after 2PM. Scattered rain is likely Friday evening and into Friday night. Any rain showers will mix with snow as temperatures drop into the 30s.

Blustery winds will continue Friday. This will make wind chills a factor as the temperatures drop into the 30s late in the day Friday. It will feel like it’s in the 30s through the afternoon with wind chills dropping to the upper teens/lower 20s Friday night.

NOT AS WARM FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY WEEKEND
Saturday is looking mostly cloudy and cold. We will have highs in the mid-30s. Scattered snow showers and flurries are expected for the area. Little accumulation is expected with any snowfall. At most, an isolated light coating is possible, mainly in the snowbelt. Saturday will be blustery and wind chills are expected to hover in the 20s through the day.

You will definitely need a jacket as the kegs are tapped and green eggs and ham served on St. Patrick’s Day. Morning lows will be in the lower to mid-20s with highs in the upper 30s to near 40° in the afternoon. Most of the day looks dry with partly sunny skies. Clouds increase for the late-afternoon and an isolated snow flurry or sprinkle of rain is possible in the evening.

STARTING NEXT WEEK CHILLY
The workweek begins with morning lows in the mid-20s Monday morning. It’s shaping up to be another mostly cloudy day. A few snow flurries are possible. Highs will be in the upper 30s.

Tuesday morning will be chilly with lows around 20°. High pressure takes over and helps clear out the clouds. It will be a mostly sunny day with occasional scattered clouds. We warm up to the mid-40s Tuesday afternoon. 

LOOKING A BIT UNSETTLED WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY
We are monitoring a storm system that brings the chance for a mix of some rain and snow showers both Wednesday and Thursday. The chance for any precipitation Werdnesday looks to be in the afternoon and evening. The risk for rain and snow will continue through Thursday.

High Temperatures warm to the mid-40s Wednesday and the lower 40s on Thursday.
