Weather Discussion

Tonight:  Mostly clear, frigid.  Lows: 10-18 (record low: 13/1966).  Winds: Becoming Light W/SW.

Saturday:  Sunshine followed by increasing afternoon clouds, breezy and chilly.  Highs: 36-44 (wind chills: 25-35).  Winds: S/SW increasing to 10-20 mph.

Saturday Night:  Increasing clouds with some spotty light rain or light freezing rain possible late, ending by dawn.  Not as cold.  Lows: 28-32 (rising late).  Winds: S/SW 2-12 mph.

Sunday:  Morning cloudiness then partly sunny and much milder.  Highs: 50-54.

With clear skies and diminish winds temperatures will plummet overnight. So tomorrow will start with frigid temperatures as readings slide back down into the teens (and possibly approach the record low of 13!) but with sunshine mixing with clouds and a moderating air mass, temperatures should reach to near 40 during the day.  

Clouds will increase Saturday night and we may see a period of a light rain or showers early Sunday morning.  Milder air will keep most of the light spotty precipitation as rain but a few pockets of light freezing rain are still possible.  Clouds Sunday morning will give way to developing sunshine as readings soar into the lower 50s.  If we see enough sun then temperatures could soar well up into the 50s!

Clouds will move back in Sunday evening followed by a shot of rain late Sunday night into Monday morning.  This next system will be ALL rain as the air mass continues to warm up.  After the rain ends Monday morning, some partial afternoon clearing is possible which would shoot temperatures up into the lower 60s!  The relatively mild air will stay with us on Tuesday with highs still into the  lower 50s.  The cooling trend continues Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day but at this point both days look dry.
