Snow and rain possible for Friday

Posted: Updated:

The gusty winds have kept temperatures on the chilly side throughout the day. The average high is 53°, and afternoon highs today stayed in the low 40s. Winds have gust to 35-40 mph, but will gradually weaken overnight. 

Dry and clear conditions will be in place for tonight into early Friday, but they don't last long. Wet snow will arrive midday Friday, after the morning commute. The timing of the storm isn't great for snow lovers as the high April sun angle will prevent snow from accumulating leading. This will lead to wet roads and minor accumulations on grassy surface. The valley will pick up nothing to a coating on grass, while the hills my see a couple of inches. The snow will change over to rain showers in the afternoon as temperatures come up into the low 40s. Rain and snow will come to an end tomorrow evening. Bottom line, tomorrow is looking rather nasty! 

The storm threat for Saturday is diminishing, as a strong low pressure system passes far enough to the south that we don't see an impacts. The sun will come out in the afternoon but temperatures stay on cool side, only in the low 40s and upper 30s for highs. 

Sunday will be the brighter of the weekend days with a decent amount of sunshine.  

And we are not done yet, we are watching another coastal storm for Tuesday this to could bring us wet snow or rain.
