Sunny and cool Tuesday, rain arrives by the end of the week

Weather

It was a chilly, breezy but dry day as we said good riddance to the winter storm that impacted us over the weekend with snow, sleet and freezing rain. While we didn’t have any additional precipitation today, any lingering puddles or moisture could freeze again overnight, leading to more slick roads by Tuesday morning.

By Tuesday afternoon, it’s nothing but sunshine with temperatures climbing into the upper 40s. Wednesday will be the “warmest” day of the week with temperatures very seasonal for this time of year in the low 50s.

By Thursday it will be cloudy, cool, and rainy as a cold front moves our way. As the cold air settles in overnight that rain could transition into snow showers, which will continue off and on through the weekend.

In addition to the chance for snow showers, it will be cold, with afternoons only in the upper 30s and mornings in the teens.

OVERNIGHT will be clear and cold. The overnight low will be 25. Winds will be west 10 mph.
