Partly cloudy overnight with a decent amount of high cloudiness. Temperatures will be on the chilly side again tonight with lows in the upper 20s.

Some clouds arrive on Wednesday afternoon, lower and thicken as the day moves along, but will be of little consequence. The big regime change comes as the high drifts off the coast and opens the door for a cold front to arrive, with rain out ahead of it on Thursday.

Thursday will be the best chance for a line of rain showers to push across the region as a cold front follows quickly behind. Thursday will be a rainy and mild, followed by a cool and breezy Friday.

There should be enough moisture lingering around Friday and even into Saturday to squeeze out a few inches of snow on west facing slopes of the Alleghany Mountains. Ski lovers will be able to enjoy some natural snow. It appears that the natural snow machine will be turned on for a couple of days.  Snow may add up to a couple inches by the time Saturday arrives.

The weekend looks mainly dry, with the exception of the mountain snow. Temps will cool down to below normal by a few degrees.
