First Alert Weather Story:
Watch out for ice this morning! Today is a FIRST ALERT for that very reason. The rain and snow we had last night will refreeze on roadways and sidewalks as temps are in the 20s throughout the morning hours.
Temps start to climb above freezing around 10am and that will help thaw that ice, but shady spots will remain slick so keep your precautions about you!
Highs today reach the low 40s and skies clear up to mostly sunny.
Sunday morning we are down to 22 and highs reach the low 50s by the afternoon. Much colder than average with plenty of sunshine as high pressure sits over the region.
Monday is dry as well, and a little warmer. Lows reach the upper 20s and highs are in the mid 50s. Expect sunny skies.
Tuesday we have cloudy skies and a low pressure system approaches from the Gulf of Mexico. This brings a 50% chance of showers. The American model brings the system to us, but the Euro does not have any precip at all. Will see what future runs show and will adjust accordingly, but for now I’ll leave in the chance for rain. Highs are in the upper 50s by the afternoon.
Alert Day Saturday: Partly Cloudy. Slippery Roads with Black Ice. Cold. Highs in the lower 40s.
Sunday: Sunny and Chilly. High temperatures in the upper 40s to near 50.
Monday: Mostly Sunny and Chilly. Highs in the mid 50s.
Tuesday: Partly Cloudy and Chilly. A Few Showers (50%). Highs in the upper 50s.
