After some morning snow showers and slick roads, conditions have definitely improved. We are getting to see some sunshine with temperatures this afternoon in the low to mid 30s. Highs today will be in the mid 30s. The sunshine and temperatures above freezing are allowing some of the snow to melt. It's still pretty breezy though, with sustained winds up to 20 mph. Wind gusts today could reach 25-30 mph. Through this afternoon and evening, you may still see a few flurries or very light snow showers. The clouds will really start moving out the area later tonight, leaving us with mostly clear skies and lows in the upper teens to low 20s. Tomorrow will start off mostly clear and chilly, with morning temperatures in the upper teens to low 20s. Later in the afternoon though, clouds will move back in ahead of a clipper like system. Highs tomorrow will in the upper 30s to near 40. Weather models continue to show the chance for light precipitation tomorrow early evening. The precipitation could initially start off as rain, but would then transition to snow. Any precipitation that does fall would be very light and only about 30% of the viewing area is expected to see that. Temperatures for the weekend are looking fantastic again. Saturday will be sunny with highs near 50. Sunday's high will be in the mid 50s. However, it will be mostly cloudy that day.
