Milder & Not as Windy Today, More Clouds Friday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


High pressure will continue to dominate our forecast today giving us another sunny day. We will see some high cloudiness from time to time as our next storm approaches from the west but overall sunshine is expected to prevail. The area of high pressure will slide to our south though causing our winds to shift from the chilly northwest direction we had yesterday and on Tuesday, to a milder west/southwest direction which will bring us some more seasonable temps. Temperatures will top off in the 40s for highs this afternoon. Skies will be partly cloudy tonight and we’ll see a wide range in temperatures from the teens over northern and eastern areas to the 20s elsewhere.


Low pressure approaching from the west will bring us clouds for the end of the week Friday. It’ll be a decent day overall but skies will be mostly cloudy. We could see a sprinkle or flurry during the day but most of the day should stay dry with a better chance for some rain and/or snow showers coming Friday evening and into the night as a cold front sweeps across the state. The front will move to our east early Saturday so any lingering clouds and snow showers will move out early and give way to partly sunny skies for the day. Slightly cooler air will move in behind the departing cold front with temperatures expecting to be in the 30s to near 40° for the highs Saturday afternoon. Another disturbance is forecast to pass to our south Saturday night and will bring colder air into the region for Sunday. Temperatures on Sunday will only reach the 20s for highs around the state but feel much cooler with a west/northwest breeze factored in.



Rest of Today: mostly sunny. A bit milder with highs between 40°-48°. West/southwest wind 5-10 MPH.


Tonight: partly cloudy. Lows between 15°-28°, coldest over northern and eastern areas. Light and variable wind.


Friday: some early sunshine possible otherwise mostly cloudy. Highs between 37°-45°. Light and variable wind.


Saturday: early snow shower possible then partly sunny and cooler. Highs in the 30s to near 40°.


Sunday: mostly cloudy with a few snow showers. Breezy and cold. Highs in the 20s to near 30°.


Monday: partly sunny. Highs in the mid-20s to low 30s.
