The sun will be sleeping in today

Good Wednesday from Meteorologist Todd Santos:

While a few light rain/snow showers will dot the morning skies, clouds are expected to clear out as we approach the early afternoon.  Thanks to a brisk NW wind, temperatures will remain on the cool side this afternoon even for the mostly sunny ride home.  The winds should settle down overnight, which will allow temperatures to drop to below the freezing mark for about a 4-8hr window leading into sunrise tomorrow.  The longer duration of sub-freezing temps will be found along the higher elevations south and east of the city.

Thursday into Friday will bring warmer daytime highs while the finish of the week will find a chance for a few scattered showers.  The chance for a few showers will continue into early Saturday, though the day is not expected to be a washout.  As the rain chances fade from the area late Saturday night a few wet snowflakes may be able to mix in.

Sunday will be dry with a chance for some light showers well to our south. Temperatures should return to right around average for this time of year into early next week.


WEDNESDAY; Still a light mix with drizzle and wet snowflakes early, though roads should just be wet. Showers will move out and sunshine will take over for the second half of the day.  High: 45-50, with a Cool Breeze. Winds: NW 15-20 G25
