There still could be some mixing in the higher elevations which may lead to some slushy slick spots. Elsewhere and for most of the area, plain rain will fall. Temperatures are fairly steady in the 30s this evening and overnight. Tomorrow, we are drying out. Sunshine does return mixing with some lingering cloud cover. Highs climb to the middle and upper 40s.

Clouds return as our next system approaches followed by some significant chill. Winds pick up Thursday, which will usher in much colder air and keep the clouds around. A few stray rain or snow showers possible too. The story will be more about the temperatures and colder air that arrives. Temperatures climb to the upper 30s and lower 40s, however, overnight, they plunge to the 20s and remain in the 30s during the day Friday. Despite some intervals of sunshine, brisk northwest winds add to the chill making it feel like the teens for much of the day.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK
High pressure builds in Saturday but we are still dealing a fair amount of cloud cover. The breeze is not as strong but winds out of the west-northwest still expected around 10 to 15mph. Highs are in the lower 30s after a frigid morning in the upper teens and lower 20s. Sunday is another cold start in the 20s. Clouds are stubborn during the day and temperatures remain in the 30s for most with a few areas hitting 40 degrees. Snow chances return late Sunday as moisture spreads in ahead of our next system. Models indicate milder air surging in helping to change any snow showers to a mix then to rain. Rain moves out early and the dry process begins. With some peaks of sunshine, highs Monday are expected in the lower and middle 40s. Tuesday is dry but chilly in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees.
