Patches of drizzle with some flurries mixed in this morning, but that will cause any icy shenanigans on our roads. We’ll dry out by midday, as the HRRR model’s radar simulation shows:
Despite the drying trend, the clouds are likely to stick around through today and into the first half of tonight. High temperatures will only top out around 40° with wind chills stuck around freezing this afternoon:
A bit more of a warm-up on Thursday after another cold start (Thursday morning’s record low is 19°), then back to close-to-normal temperatures by Friday:
Right now it looks like the best chance of showers and a few storms will arrive later in the day Friday, but we’ll be able to narrow that down more effectively beginning tomorrow.
We’ll dry out over the weekend — temperatures will be slightly below-normal, but it’s still looking pretty pleasant nonetheless:
A bigger warm-up early next week before our next good chance of rain on Tuesday.
