Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 51°
  • 43°

A large storm system is moving through the region today, keeping skies gray and dreary and pulling in some cooler air on its backside. We'll have cloudy skies with occasional light rain, especially in the morning and midday hours, with just a few sprinkles later in the day and this evening as the storm system pulls away to the east. Temperatures, meanwhile, will slowly drop off from the lower 50s to the 40s today with brisk northwest winds that will make it feel even more uncomfortable. Thursday looks drier, but still mainly gray and blustery with high temperatures in the mid 40s. A little sunshine will try to break through by sunset tomorrow with a little more sunshine likely brightening our skies through Friday. A few light showers may graze the area to the south later Friday with high temperatures in the lower 50s. Most of Saturday looks dry, but a few showers will drift in later in the day ahead of a large storm system that will dominate the second half of the weekend. Sunday looks particularly nasty with thick clouds, strong, gusty winds, and light rain expected through the day. High temperatures Sunday afternoon will only be in the mid 40s. A few snowflakes may mix in at times through early Monday morning with some light rain in store for much of our Monday. Finally, warmer weather and some sunshine look to return behind that system for much of the upcoming work week, so there will hopefully be better weather in the long term.
