Today is the official start of winter but it felt more like spring with temperatures approaching 50 degrees in many locations. Gusty southeast winds and heavy rainfall made for a miserable day. The frontal system responsible for all this is going to move through our region tonight and once it goes by the wind will drop off with just scattered light precipitation. Saturday is shaping up as a cloudy day with a few rain or snow showers. Temperatures should top out pretty close to 40 degrees and as it turns out this will be the last relatively mild day for awhile. The wind will shift into the northwest Saturday night ushering in colder air for Sunday. Despite sunny skies temperatures on Sunday probably won't climb much staying in the upper 20s and lower 30s. The cold stretch is expected to continue through next week with a very slight chance for some light snow Monday night. There is a better chance for snowfall Wednesday night into Thursday.
