The cold front from the upper Midwest passes through Thursday night into Friday morning, merging with the system from the Ohio River Valley. Scattered showers will be likely overnight. Rain total may surpass an inch, especially south of US 24, which will cause minor river flooding. Lows will be in the upper 40s.
After a cloudy start Friday morning, skies will clear during the late morning and afternoon. Partly sunny skies are expected to wrap up your work week. Northwest winds will increase, as we could see gusts over 30 mph. Highs will be near average, in the low 60s. We'll see mostly clear skies Friday night, which will allow all the daytime heat to escape. Patchy frost may form. Lows will fall to the mid to upper 30s.
Clouds arrive quickly Saturday morning ahead of our next low pressure system. Showers won't start until after lunchtime and will stay until early Sunday morning. There will be limited moisture with this system, so rain totals will remain below half an inch. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s.
The cold front passes through Saturday night, bringing in a slight chance for the precipitation to change over to snow. The ground is too warm, so we're likely going to see a dusting on grassy surfaces. Northeast winds pick up overnight with gusts up to 30 mph near sunrise. Lows will be in the low 40s.
Cloudy skies stick around for early Sunday morning, but all the precipitation will be over by sunrise. We'll see skies clearing for the rest of your day, but it will be chilly. Highs will struggle to reach the mid 50s, well below average for this time of year. Our dry conditions won't last for long as we'll see clouds building in Sunday night ahead of our next system. Lows will be in the upper 30s.
Scattered showers return to start next week.
