Sunny, Breezy & Cold Today, Snow, Mix & Rain Friday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


A ridge of high pressure will slide into the area today giving us a good amount of sunshine. Sunshine will gradually fade this afternoon as our next storm approaches from the west. Temperatures will remain below average with highs in the mid-20s to low 30s this afternoon. Winds will remain gusty today as strong low pressure sits to our east/northeast. West/northwest winds could gust to 30-40 MPH this morning then slowly diminish this afternoon. Clouds will continue to thicken tonight as we may see some light snow or snow showers moving into western and northwestern parts of the state after midnight otherwise most locales will remain dry through the nighttime hours.


Weak low pressure is forecast to pass just north of the state on Friday, allowing milder air to move into the region and giving us some snow, mix and rain throughout the day. With the milder air moving in, it looks like precipitation will start as snow and mix up then changing to rain during the afternoon over northern areas while the rest of the state sees a brief mix early in the morning then a change to all rain for much of the day. Friday’s temperatures will top off in the upper 30s to low 40s. High pressure returns to the forecast giving us a nice start to the weekend with sunshine and seasonable temperatures on Saturday. Low pressure passing to our south on Sunday could give us some more snow and mixed precipitation depending on the track of the storm. We’ll keep you posted as we get closer.
