During the day of Friday and beyond, temperatures will be moderating back above average for this time of year with highs in the upper 40s to start the weekend into the mid to upper 50s with sunny to mostly sunny conditions. This is due to the area of high pressure shifting back towards the east, bringing in that warmer air. During the mid part of the next week, a shortwave low pressure system could come in and bring the region some snow. Uncertainty is still in the data given at this time, but we will continue to keep you up to date. Cold and cloudy skies regardless of any precipitation chances during this time frame.
