Plenty of sunshine today, soaking rain tomorrow with chance for snow flakes next week
Plenty of sunshine today, and it will be seasonably cool with highs in the mid 50's.
Rain returns tomorrow as an area of low pressure will be sliding in from the Southwest. Expect some low level clouds and just some patchy drizzle for the morning commute, then rain will likely overspread the region by mid-afternoon and remain steady through the evening hours. It does once again look soggy for Friday Night High School Football playoff games with the rain not tapering off until after 10pm. Most areas can expect another soaking 1" of rain. While we don't anticipate any flooding issues on area creeks and streams, be prepared for ponding on the roads and a sloppy Friday evening commute. It would also be a good idea to clear storm drains of any falling leaves and debris before the rain moves in tomorrow.
Our skies will gradually clear on Saturday for a chilly but dry weekend. Get the winter coats ready because highs on Saturday will stall in the mid 40's with a Northwest breeze making it feel like the 30's! By early Sunday morning we will experience our first widespread freeze of the season with temperatures bottoming out in the upper 20's.
Expect the colder than average temperatures to stick around for much of next week with another chance for some rain moving in by Tuesday morning. It will be much colder when this system arrives and we could see some of the precipitation change over to wet snow later on Tuesday. It will be too warm at the surface for the snow to accumulate, but we could see our first flakes of the season next week!
