      Today's Forecast Image
      • 41°
      • 19°

      Updated Friday, January 19, 2018

      A very mild start to the day with lows closer to where we should be for highs! We stay mild today as we climb into the upper 30s to mid 40s, but we will have more clouds tracking in. They should stay fairly high and thin, but will get thicker tonight and tomorrow as the next system tracks our way. South winds will be gusting to 25 mph today and may stay gusty into the evening before dying down by morning. We could have areas of fog by morning due to all the melting snow.

      The system tracking our way for Sunday and Monday may start as some freezing drizzle late Saturday night into early Sunday morning before we warm enough to have mainly rain. The track of the system is still in question, but it may go right over us. This would mean more rain and drizzle and less snow, but we will still have snow mixing in, especially northern counties. Everyone changes to snow on Monday as temperatures drop and the low tracks northeast. Winds will become strong Sunday night and Monday, too.
