THIS EVENING
It should be a quiet and dry evening with the wind slowly dying down. Clouds will remain as a weak disturbance dives to the southeast but will break up overnight. Temperatures fall out of the low 30s to the low 20s.

Evening Hour by Hour
WEEKEND OUTLOOK
With a light breeze out of the south and the jetstream lifting north, milder air starts to move in. Lows won’t be as cold in the upper teens to near 20. Despite clouds hanging around, highs will warm to the upper 30s to near 40 which is right about where we should be for this time of the year. It will be even milder Saturday night as lows will be well above average in the upper 20s to near 30. Area of low pressure passes to our north which keeps us on the milder side and also drier side of things. There will be plenty of dry hours now for Sunday. The rain chance is not until very late. Our snow chances are slim to none as highs will reach the low to mid 40s and remain mild overnight into Monday.


OUTLOOK
Low pressure will track across the area Monday dragging a cold front. By the time the colder air wraps in, most of the moisture associated with the system is gone so the chance of snow mixing in with the rain is small. The front pushes through late and colder air returns for Tuesday. We stay dry for a couple of days with highs ranging from the low 30s to the upper 30s, which is a tad below to near seasonal. Next system brings clouds and a few light snow showers overnight Wednesday into Thursday. It will be followed by another round of bitterly cold but dry air for Friday into the weekend.
