More Clouds But Mild

There will be some spotty light rain on Thursday, but it’s not going to amount to much. Clouds hang with us on Friday, but with most rain remaining east of the Foothills. Weekend weather requires significant adjustments to earlier thinking. Details in the Discussion Section.

Forecast Discussion

A front will move across the area in weakening fashion on Thursday, promoting some spotty light rainfall, but it won’t be significant.

Friday now looks predominately dry as a wave of rain tracks along the stalled-out front to our east. Temperatures will stay mild through the workweek.

Changes are required for Superbowl Weekend. It now appears likely that an upper level low will lumber across the Southeastern United States. While timing is uncertain, rain will become likely on Saturday and this may continue into Sunday, depending on system speed.

Cold air is largely lacking, but there will be some wet snow across the mountains with this system. How far east some of this gets will depend on system timing and precipitation intensity. For now, we have rain, perhaps mixed with snow at times, for Saturday night into Sunday morning. Timing of this prediction will undoubtedly change.
