- Heavy rain
Winter is back! Or, at least it's returning. We start today with temperatures near 50 degrees, rain and even a possible rumble of thunder. We end today with temperatures tumbling into the upper 20s and some light accumulating snow. In between, as the transitions takes place, we may even encounter a round of sleet.
Here's the current timeline:
Through noon: Mostly rain with falling temperatures from the 50s to near 40 degrees. Wet roads and reduced visibility the biggest concerns.
Noon - 4pm: Rain mixing with/changing to snow. Sleet is possible also. Any accumulation will be very light but a slick road and a dusting of snow is possible.
4pm - 8pm: Scattered snow showers tapering off. Light accumulation possible on grassy surfaces, rooftops, etc.
Cold air will invade tonight as temperatures drop to the middle teens by daybreak. The sunshine returns tomorrow but we will struggle to reach freezing. That is a 35 plus degree drop in temperatures from our highs yesterday in the lower 70s.
We return to the 50s though by Friday and Saturday.
