The area is much milder today from our weekend dance with the wintry weather, and we should warm up even more Wednesday and Thursday. The highs will be in the 70s most locations east of the foothills under mostly sunny skies.
The flow of air tonight and Wednesday will be from the south and may have a few clouds hitching along for the ride. The clouds will help keep the overnight lows from dropping below the middle 40s in the NRV, while most other places get into the upper and middle 30s.
Sunny and dry on Wednesday with highs in the 70s as high pressure takes over. The mild conditions will continue into Thursday but there will be a noticeable increase in cloud cover as the day moves along.
The chance for rain arrives late in the day, possibly after sunset and that will be the end of the mild weather.
Thursday night the rain arrives, not much, only expecting about an inch, but the bigger result from the rain will be the much colder air that follows. This cold front will be chased by cold air from the northwest and should push us back into the cold zone this weekend.
Highs on Friday will only be in the 40s and there will be a brisk wind to accompany the cold snap. Not much moisture left with this event after Thursday night/Friday before dawn so expect mostly sunny skies to start the weekend.
The next batch of rain is slated for Monday, and although the region will be chilly, there is not much hope of any snow as by the time the rain arrives the area will be in the 50s.
