We started this morning in the upper teens and low 20s across the Tri-State under mostly sunny skies. It was frigid, but the only other complaint was some patchy fog that stuck around for the first part of the morning.
High pressure will move east of the region today through tonight. We will make way to plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures - highs are expected to reach the lower 40s. Dry weather will prevail, with a few passing clouds today. No need to grab the rain gear, but conditions will begin changing this weekend. Increasing cloud cover will happen overnight, which will help temperatures stay a bit warmer Saturday morning - upper 20s to lower 30s.
All eyes are on the next active weather system for the weekend. Rain chances will increase from west to east Saturday; the latest models show rain chances popping up in the later morning hours. Thunderstorms will be possible in the later hours of the day. Heavy downpours will be greater in the late afternoon into the overnight hours as the cold front sweeps through the area. We can expect highs in the mid 40s, those will be reached Saturday morning or evening. Showers will gradually lighten up heading into your Sunday morning.
Sunday looks to be mostly cloudy with lingering rain showers. Highs will be a bit more mild in the upper 40s. However, there is a slight chance of catching some light snow flurries mixed in with rain Sunday night into Monday morning. There is still a good possibility we could see .5 - 1.5" of rainfall as we wrap up the weekend.
