Forecast Discussion:

The main weather story continues to be the unseasonably warm start to the weekend that is expected. Highs climb well into the 50s Saturday. While we do expect some dry periods, it will be wet at times with a 100% chance of showers and rain. Rainfall totals range from 0.25-0.75″. We do not anticipate enough rain to cause any issues. Nor do we expect any widespread severe weather.

As a cold front crosses late, a line of gusty showers, and perhaps a thundershower, is possible. The best chance of this would be after about 6pm. The record high for Saturday is 60. As the colder air builds in behind the cold front, the gusty winds will follow. Gusts could reach 40-50mph as the cold front moves through your area. The strongest winds will last 8-12hrs and taper into the overnight. During the peak of the strongest winds some power outages are possible. Most at risk will be the higher terrain. Lows will be in the upper 20s to low 30s by Sunday morning.
