Dry through the weekend with moderating temps…watching Tues/Wed time frame closely for potential coastal storm…

Partly to mostly sunny skies are expected over the weekend. Moderation in temperatures occurs both Saturday and Sunday with high temperatures in the upper 40s, and mostly sunny continues into Monday, although not quite as mild.

Another system could bring snow/mix/rain to the region on Tuesday, and model guidance is all over the place with this system, and that threat now extends into Wednesday. A complete miss is also on the table, as is a more significant mostly snow event, or a wintry mix changing to snow. We will continue to monitor its evolution closely over the weekend, and may need a first call for this storm late Sunday afternoon if an accumulating snow threat is more likely. Skies return to partly cloudy on Thursday and Friday in the wake of this potential system, while maintaining below average temperatures.
