The week is ending on a dry note, with a mild and rainy weekend ahead and another winter storm by midweek, according to the National Weather Service.
Today will be mostly cloudy and dry through the evening, with highs reaching a mild 41 degrees and dropping into the upper 20s overnight.
Some light rain will fall on Saturday, but not until after 10 p.m.
“It will be only a 10th of an inch [of rain] or less, nothing much,” said weather service meteorologist Bill Simpson.
Cloudy skies and highs around 39 degrees will prevail during the day, dropping only a few degrees that evening.
Rain will continue overnight, and peter out by mid-afternoon Sunday. Highs could climb as high as 47 degrees during the day, and drop into the mid-20s overnight.
Next week will start off clear and dry, with partly sunny skies and highs near 34 degrees on Monday. Skies will stay clear overnight as temperatures drop to 23 degrees.
Tuesday should be mostly sunny, with temperatures cresting near 36 degrees. Some snow could fall Tuesday night as clouds roll in and temperatures sink to 29 degrees.
The region could wake up to a “significant storm” Wednesday, bringing rain, snow and sleet, forecasters said.
“If the storm tracks west, it will bring a lot of warm air and rain, but if it goes further east, there’s more cold air and it’s more likely to snow,” Simpson said. “There are a lot of variances, but we could hint at a storm.”Catalina Gaitan can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
