THURSDAY & THURSDAY NIGHT:
Mostly clouds skies will be sticking around for Thursday, but despite that, it will be slightly warmer than Wednesday. Along with the clouds will come a small chance of occasional light snow/flurries and light rain/sprinkles. Amounts will be minimal. Of bigger note will be stronger northwest winds making their return. Winds speeds will climb to 15 to 25 mph. Gusts could occasionally get over 30 mph. Look for highs in the upper 30s and low to mid 40s, which is close to average.
Look for clearing skies Thursday night. Wind speeds will die down a little. We'll see lows between 25° and 30°.
FRIDAY through SUNDAY:
Sunshine returns on Friday as temperature work their way up to well above average. We'll see highs in the low to mid 50s. Winds will be a bit breezy out of the northwest at 10 to 20 mph.
The best day of this three day stretch will come Saturday as temperatures soar into the upper 50s and low to mid 60s. Skies will remain mostly sunny.
Sunday may be just a little cooler with a mix of clouds and sun. Temperatures will still be well above average. We'll see highs from near 50° north to the lower 60s southeast.
MONDAY & TUESDAY:
Slightly more active weather returns next week along with a slight cooldown. Highs on Monday will return to the 40s with more clouds and a slight chance of light rain.
For now, I have kept the chance of rain out of the forecast for Tuesday. Parts of the Local4 viewing area may see some very light rain, but the chance isn't good enough right now to warrant throwing in the forecast for now. As for highs on Tuesday, it should be slightly warmer than Monday with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
