Temps, rain will fall Saturday; some could see snow


Little accumulation here was a result of snow melting as it fell for a few hours late Thursday morning into early afternoon, said Vince Godon, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Weather systems moving towards the coast delivering showers today and rain tomorrow. There will also be an overnight hypothermia alert if the temperature is forecasted to be 40° F or below and the forecasted chance of precipitation is 50 percent or greater. Then, it looks like we could see a couple days in a row of drier weather with more spring-like temperatures on the way by the end of next week. We start Sunday off on the sunny side but clouds continue to increase throughout the day.

A gradual warming trend my the middle of next week puts daytime highs in the upper 80s by Friday. High temperatures will only be in the 30s to around 40.

After a cold Saturday morning across the QCA, which featured near record low temperatures, we now turn our attention towards the potential of accumulating snowfall for our Sunday evening into Monday morning. Be careful on the roads, as paved surfaces quickly froze, then became snow covered last night as the arctic front moved through.

Travel there could be slow and slick in spots by Sunday morning. Saturday will be partly cloudy and cold with high temperatures struggling to get to 40° during the afternoon. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 24.

Tuesday could be a bit warmer with highs in the 50s, and Wednesday's highs are expected to rise into the mid-60s. The 8-14 day outlook suggests that there's a good chance we'll be back to below average temperatures by the third week of April.
