Rainy Weekend Forecast

The warm winter weather continues! Just a few nights ago, our lows were in the teens, so it is hard to believe we hit 64° today. The record high is 68° from 2007 while our record low was -6° way back in 1924. Last year we were just 40° and 27° with an inch of snow. Normal highs and lows this date are 46° and 26°. We recorded 2" of snow this date in 1979 and had 7" on the ground back in 1960.

A chance for showers overnight Friday will linger into Saturday as we'll see temperatures slide down a few degrees from the current reading of 55°. Showers won't crank up until the early morning hours (after 3 am) and will continue through about noon on Saturday with a high of 57°. Winds will be mainly calm to about 5 mph.

Saturday night will be mostly cloudy and cooler with a low of 41° while Sunday's weather will see clouds hanging around and a high of just 52°. Rain returns for Sunday night and will last all the way into Wednesday night where we may see it end as snow showers. Expect colder weather for Thursday and Friday.
