Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
Finally, after 10 days, we saw temperatures back above 40 degrees for the first time. In fact, we broke the 50-degree mark which put a rather well-deserved end to the deep freeze we’ve been in all week. Tonight, the reappearance of valley fog is pretty much a lock with all the wet ground, that’ll help keep overnight lows sitting in the low 30s. Some outlying areas may slip into the upper 20s, so some area roads could still be a little slick going into the weekend.
Speaking of the weekend, high pressure is back for most of our weekend forecast. Because of all the wet ground, I’d say morning fog for the valleys both Saturday and Sunday with partial sunshine by the afternoon. Highs will be back to a more typical range, mid to upper 40s. A weak front might try to sprinkle some light showers across the region Sunday afternoon, otherwise, we’re dry through the whole weekend.
Next week stays dry as well until Wednesday through Friday when the next batch of showers, mountain snow and colder air moves in. Highs might drop back into the upper 30s but not back into the ice cooler like this week!
Have a great weekend!
