Rain Ends Very Cold Air Follows Into Holiday Weekend Warmer Sunday Monday
We are starting the day off with some rain however this is the last storm system of the recent series of 4 that will impact our weather. Once it is done later today and rain moves out weather conditions are set to improve. However we are going to get a quick shot of very cold air hitting rock bottom Saturday morning with lows in the single digits and low teens in many areas.
Satellite and radar show that we still have more work to do regarding rain for today but this will eventually slide to the east by early afternoon in most places. Temperatures today should make it into the 40s.

Skies should start to clear out tonight and it will turn colder. By morning we will be in the 20s to near 30. Then Friday high pressure builds in from the Great Lakes funneling very cold air southward on gusty northerly winds. Temperatures will likely hold in the upper 20s to lower 30s all day with ineffective sunshine and then head down to the coldest temperatures of the winter. Of course this all comes at the start of the holiday weekend.
Saturday brings us plenty of sunshine but it will be a very cold day with most highs must in the upper 20s to lower 30s. Then temperatures moderate for Sunday and Monday. We should bounce back into the 40s Sunday as the cold air moves out. We will have clouds around along with some sun. A weak cold front comes through Sunday night with little weather other than clouds. Monday Presidents Day we should see some sunshine with most highs in the 40s. Finally we are getting a well deserved 4 day break with no rain or snow forecast.
