A sprawling area of high pressure will continue to dominate our weather. While we had sunshine today, a clear sky will set the stage for another cold night tonight with lows in the 20s. Some of the coldest valley locations will drop into the teens. This high will shift a little to the south Friday and with sunshine and a westerly flow temperatures will rebound to near 50 in locations during the afternoon. The bright weather will start to end as we head into the weekend. Sunshine will give way to clouds Saturday as the first in a series of disturbances comes our way. This disturbance will bring rain showers Saturday night into Sunday. As of now most of the rainfall looks light and the threat for a wintry mix seems quite low. Despite the clouds, it will be milder over the weekend with daytime highs in the 40s and nighttime lows above freezing. There still could be a couple of showers early Monday then clouds will break for some sunshine. Temperatures will reach into the middle 40s. The next disturbance will bring the chance for rain and snow showers Tuesday with the chance for some flurries and snow showers Wednesday, especially early in the day.
