Pinpoint Weather: Rainy and windy Friday, dry and cool weekend

(WFXR). Plenty of sunshine, less wind, mild temperatures, and an overall gentle day Thursday.  Expect to see a much wetter pattern on Friday and a bit windier.

Clouds will move in overnight and trap any heat gained during the day Thursday so lows will be in the 40s tonight.

A cold front will migrate toward the Commonwealth and be the focal point for the next round of rain to saturate the soil.

Rain is expected on Friday and although there will be widespread rain most of the day, the amount of rain will be around a quarter to about a half inch.

Winds will be gusty and may knock over some trees or crack off some limbs onto power lines.  Power outages are possible Friday.

Since it is St. Patrick’s Day, it might be a good idea to check for some rainbows, just in case you are feeling lucky.

Once the showers end overnight into Saturday the skies will clear and we should be dry for the next several days. Winds will be howling a bit on Saturday before relaxing on Sunday.

Our weekend will be breezy and cool with highs on Saturday in the low 50s and only in the low 40s Sunday.

The Vernal Equinox is on Monday, March 20th this year at 5:52 pm when the direct rays of the sun are over the equator.
