More of the cold air settles across the state this evening and into tonight, but there will be a slowing in the cooling process later into Thursday morning. While still cold, not as cold as it was for our Wednesday morning.
Clear skies will continue across the area with occasional passing high clouds, but the temps will get down to or below freezing for the state viewing area. While dry weather continues into Thursday and there will be plenty of sunshine, this will be a day of slight warming. Temps will be warming into the upper 40s and lower 50s area wide. There is not much in the way of change as a cold front comes passing through very quickly into Friday. There will be a few more clouds in the mix, but not enough moisture to produce and additional rain or snow showers for the state.
A new batch of cold air will settle into the state over the weekend which will once again push us back into the upper 30s for highs and overnight lows will be dropping back down into the lower and middle 20s for all of the viewing area. This is the first stretch of cold air for a week that we have seen all winter season long. There will be an additional disturbance that moves in to the state on Monday. There will be some preceding clouds that move in for Sunday night, but the moisture will hold off until Monday.
Rain will become likely for the first of next week with highs into the 40s. There will be rain on and off throughout the day and there is the potential that a little of the this becoming mixed with some snow but the best coverage will be of rain. Temperatures will continue to be too warm for any accumulations if we do see the transition over to snow in the viewing area, but we’ll continue to watch the models carefully.
