HOUR BY HOUR // Daily/Hourly Temps and Sky Conditions »

It stays chilly today with highs only reaching the upper 20s to around 30. Winds will be from the north 5-10 mph.

THIS EVENING: While most locations will get snow/freezing rain later tonight, it’s possible that some light snow starts a little sooner for the south coast after around 8PM.

Snow will mix with sleet and possibly freezing rain overnight into early Sunday morning.

The precipitation amounts look very light and a major storm is not anticipated. Any snow/sleet accumulation looks minor with a thin coating; however, we’re more concerned about a light icy glaze from freezing rain or freezing drizzle that could make untreated surfaces slick, especially Sunday morning. The risk of ice and freezing rain will be highest along the south coast, although the risk exists for our entire viewing area.

Most of the freezing rain/ mix should be over by late morning, but a few pockets of drizzle or freezing drizzle could linger into the afternoon.

The chance of a light wintry mix continues on President’s Day Monday. In fact, next week looks like a very active pattern with the potential for a variety of precipitation types on Tuesday and Thursday, too. The eventual track of these systems will help determine the precipitation type/location and amounts. Please stay tuned over the weekend for updates.
