For This Weekend
- Highs in the upper 30’s
- Lows in the lower 20’s
The weather pattern currently in place looks to hang around for at least the short term. While a weak cold front will push through the area throughout the afternoon today which will provide a very small chance for precipitation, high pressure will build in behind it providing clear to most sunny skies throughout the weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday look to reach the upper 30’s to lower 40’s while lows will hover around the lower 20’s. Bundle up if you have to go out at night!
In other news, following the round of heavy precipitation we received in November and December, many cities in the state have broken records for a rainfall total for a year. The following graphic depicts new records set around the state. (Provided by the NWS)
