418 PM EST Sat Dec 10 2016
Sunny skies were seen by nearly everyone today as high pressure
built into the region. Winds were lighter than the past couple of
days due to a weakening pressure gradient. Temperatures rebounded
a bit from the early winter chill as many locations in the
mountains managed to rise to or just above freezing, and areas
east made it to the low 40s.
As the current airmass continues to modify, temperatures will
continue to become warmer over the next couple of days. Winds
should pick up again tomorrow as a cold front approaches.
Sunday night into Monday, rain will begin through much of the
region. Some possibilities exist for freezing rain at the highest
elevations, however this is anticipated to be strictly rain. A
break from any inclement weather will occur on Tuesday before more
unsettled weather moves in midweek.
