Reported by: Chief Meteorologist Joe Murgo
We had a nice break today with sunshine giving way to some clouds. A disturbance passing by to the north has brought some rain and snow showers to the area this afternoon and there will be some showers of rain and snow early tonight, especially near and north of I-80 where there can be a fresh covering of snow in spots. Though it will not be a repeat as last night with most of the energy passing by well to the north. Later tonight will remain mostly cloudy and relatively mild for this time of the year with temperatures only dropping off to near 30. Friday will be breezy and mild with more clouds than sunshine. An approaching front will bring rain and snow showers to the area, especially during the afternoon. The snow showers may be more numerous Friday night with a fresh covering of snow in spots. Behind the front, the weekend will be windy and cold with scattered flurries and snow showers. The flurries and snow showers will be a little more numerous on Saturday then Sunday. Temperatures will struggle to make 30 on Saturday but will fail to rise higher than the lower 20s on Sunday. The wind will make it feel even colder. A bubble of high pressure will give us a return of some sunshine Monday with temperatures rebounding into the 30s. Rain and snow showers are likely with the next front on Tuesday followed by another shot of cold with snow showers on Wednesday.
