Rain Arrives Later Today
Sorry for the late post. A nasty stomach bug has sidelined myself and oldest daughter.
RAIN-FILLED ACTIVE PATTERN: Expect rain to move in later today and it will be with us tonight, all day on Friday, and possible mix with snow on Friday night into Saturday. Daytime highs for Friday will be in the middle 40's, with lows tonight in the lower 30's. High on Saturday in the upper 30's with morning snow/rain mix. It isn't out of the question to see at least an INCH of rain by Saturday. As far as snow goes, I'm thinking a mix without much, if any, accumulation.
EXTENDED OUTLOOK: Expect this active pattern to continue with another rainmaker moving in on Monday and sticking around through mid-week. Temperatures are expected to be below normal and wintry precipitation isn't out of the question.
