It looks as if the rest of Wednesday will stay dry, but you can expect it to remain mostly cloudy for the rest of today with highs lucky to reach the mid 50’s. Rain will resume late Wednesday night into Thursday morning but should taper off during the afternoon hours, with the rest of the day remaining mostly cloudy. Today and Thursday we will remain in a zonal pattern, but by Friday we will have a developing trough swinging through our area. Friday we can still expect some scattered showers but mainly before 1 pm. Friday will set the stage for a cold Saturday. The High temperature on Friday will struggle to hit the low 50’s. Looking at the 12 UTC run of the GFS at noon on Friday we can see the the 0 degree Celsius line at 850 mb is just to our south while the 540 thickness line is just to our North. Looking ahead to the weekend. As of now the current model runs are showing Saturday to be even colder than Friday, with possible highs in the mid to upper 40’s. The cold air on Saturday will result from a very deep trough that will be spilling cold Canadian air into our area. By Sunday it looks like the trough will be pushed to our east by a ridge building to our west. Though look for an update on Friday for a better idea of just how cold it will be on Saturday and for your complete weekend forecast.
