THURSDAY SUNRISE: 7:14 AM

Patchy drizzle and areas of fog develop through the mid-morning hours Thursday. Primarily dry for today with overcast skies. An area of low pressure moves into the Great Lakes and moisture pushes eastward as a warm front lifts Thursday evening. The chance for rain increases in the late afternoon to the evening hours. Thanks to a light southerly wind flow, temperatures warm above average once again, to the low-50s. 

Rain is likely into the overnight with rumbles of thunder also possible. Overnight lows stay mild, in the 40s, under mostly cloudy skies. Winds become breezy, out of the south, anywhere from 5-15 mph. Total rainfall from Thursday through Friday is between .50-1″. Localized amounts may be higher for areas of higher terrain and areas around small streams and creeks. With rain likely overnight combined with snowmelt, ponding of water in low lying areas are possible along with minor flooding issues. 

A cold front moves through the region early Friday which drops our temperatures from west to east. Temperatures fall to near freezing by the afternoon as cooler air works into the region. Lingering rain showers turn to snow showers but expected to stay light. Lows Friday night into the teens. Chance for flurries continues early Saturday before high pressure takes hold. Highs for the weekend near 30 degrees.
