Temperatures are falling and rain will be tapering off west to east by early evening. As this rain tapers off temperatures will be falling to near freezing and some of us will see some sleet and possibly a few snow flakes. Areas that get some rain when temperatures fall to 32 or colder will also see some light freezing rain. However, it still appears the bulk of the moisture will be out before we get that cold. We will need to pay close attention to bridges and overpasses this evening for any freezing rain issues and other roadways if there is enough sleet (ice pellets). For those that get sleet and/or snow, amounts should remain below 1/2 inch. Our biggest concern is likely the overnight black ice threat. Any left-over moisture on roadways will refreeze due to temperatures falling to near 20. Watch out on your deck and sidewalks too.
Starting tomorrow through Monday, a nice stretch of sunny weather returns. Temperatures will start out cold with highs tomorrow only in the mid 30s. Then we reach the 50s on Saturday and near 60 on Sunday. Next week the chance for showers returns, but temperatures are going to be well above freezing. Highs in the 50s to near 60 and lows in the 40s.
