Warm Tuesday leads into cooler week, showers today, possible snow this week


It was originally thought that there could be leftover showers on Wednesday, but now it's looking like the rain will clear out with plenty of time before sunrise on Wednesday, so I'm taking away the rain chances of Wednesday. Due to the cloud cover and cooling showers, temperatures aren't going to budge much, hovering in the low to mid 40s this afternoon, possibly upper 30s in some spots.

Saturday: Cloudy, chance for snow showers. The showers will end late Friday afternoon. There may be some clearing late in the day, but the bulk of the clearing will take place overnight and that will set us up for a very nice day on Thursday. As the winds pick up and gradually shift to a westerly then northerly direction they will initially shuffle out the clouds for some sunshine on Wednesday and then start funneling in colder air. A strong cold front will bring widespread rain throughout this morning.

Even colder air will move in later this week.

Sunday will be partly cloudy and cold.
