Tracking rain chances for tonight

We’re tracking mostly cloudy skies for tonight, with a few passing showers possible due to a passing cold front. A few snowflakes may mix in briefly, but the precipitation will be mainly rain as it pushes out of the region by mid-morning tomorrow. Overnight lows will bottom out in the 20s. Winds will shift from the south to the northwest as the cold front pushes through, but winds will remain sustained at 10 to 20 mph.

Those breezy winds will stick around for tomorrow morning, causing wind chill temperatures to drop into the single digits and teens. Winds will remain out of the northwest at 10 to 20 mph throughout the day tomorrow, keeping wind chills in the 20s and 30s even though we’re forecasting highs hugging the 40 degree mark. That chill in the air will go along with more sun than clouds for tomorrow.

Chilly temperatures stick around through Wednesday, with highs in the lower 40s. A couple of disturbances will keep our weather unsettled, but will also keep the chance of snow in the forecast. Some northern areas could get clipped by some light snow showers early Tuesday, but little to no accumulation is expected. Chances of rain and snow stick around for Wednesday and early Thursday.

However, Thursday will be the first day of a gradual warm up, so a wintry mix is only expected for the early morning hours. The second half of the week will see temperatures back in the 50s and 60s. Scattered rain showers are possible for Friday, but drier and sunnier weather is expected just in time for next weekend.
