TODAY: It’ll be a chilly start to Wednesday with a few locations registering the upper teens. With the dry air in place, temperatures will quickly warm back to the freezing point a few hours after sunrise. Highs on Wednesday will be a few degrees above average and in the upper 40s while Thursday will come in around 50 degrees. Rain chances will increase Thursday and through the day on Friday. The severe weather potential remains low, but a soaking rain will bring saturated conditions back to the area. Temperatures will gradually fall from the 50s on Thursday to the 40s on Friday and finally the lower 30s on Saturday. Any moisture leftover from Friday will turn to snow on Saturday. While snow is possible, accumulations look limited at this time.

EXTENDED FORECAST: We shake off the cold, snowy pattern midweek with highs reaching back into the 40s and even possibly 50 degrees on Thursday. Our next system to watch will move in Thursday night and Friday but right now it looks like all rain, not snow. Still no sign of true spring weather (60s & 70s) at least through the rest of March.
