The best part of the weekend will be Saturday. Bright morning skies will give way afternoon clouds. Temperatures will struggle to reach the low 40s for many communities. Our storm should arrive Saturday evening and extend through early afternoon Sunday. It's looking more wet than white for most of the area. The exception will be in the hills and mountains where a snow/mix is expected at the onset and possibly at the end. Even there though, a change to rain is expected. A strong cold front will move through Sunday, and in its wake, expect cold and windy conditions to make an appearance Sunday afternoon. Gusts will should again peak in the 30 to 40 mph range. Colder temperatures and windy conditions will again lead weather headlines Monday. Highs will struggle to get out of the middle 30s. If you're traveling before the holiday, I don't anticipate any weather related problems. We'll have to keep an eye on the storm potential late next weekend. Stay tuned.
