Saturday: Wintry mix/light snow between 8 am -12 pm changing over to rain for the remainder of the day. Cloudy. Windy. High: 48-52°. Wind: S 10-25 mph.
Saturday Night: Rain tapers off and skies begin to clear. In total, expect 0.25-0.50" of precip. Low: 36-39°. Wind: SW 10-30 mph.
Sunday: Clearing skies early then becoming mostly sunny. Windy. High: 42-45°. Wind: NW 15-30 mph.
The Arctic high that brought us this cold weather will slowly be kicked out as a developing low-pressure system moves in. The temperatures will play an important role in this because there remains the chances of seeing snowflakes early Saturday morning... the timing will be between 8-12 pm and if any snow does fall it'll likely be in the north. The chances of snow will come to an end as warmer air will then begin to move in and replace the potential light snow with rain... and everyone has a chance of seeing rain. At this time, there is little to no accumulation expected with snow. In general, it'll be mainly rain and you can expect 0.25-0.50" by the time it's all said and done early Sunday morning. The transition between rain and snow will likely occur in the late morning to afternoon hours.
As mentioned already, this system clears out early on Sunday and then we will continue to see blustery winds, temperatures in the mid 40s, and clearing skies.
Another blast of Arctic air will move in behind the low-pressure and this will allow for below average temperatures to continue for much of the upcoming work-week... with highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s and fairly dry conditions.
An average high temperature for mid-January is 44 degrees and a low of 26 degrees.
