Be prepared for scattered rain and snow showers through this afternoon.

Although we're not expecting tons of snow, as you know, it doesn't take much to slicken up the roadways. Bridges, overpasses, on/off ramps are especially susceptible to becoming slick and slippery. Winds will also pick up this afternoon gusting at times upwards of 30 to 40 mph under mostly cloudy skies. We're in the upper 30s for highs today with overnight lows in the mid 20s.

Get ready for lots of sunshine on Saturday! A few flurries are possible before sunrise tomorrow; however, the clouds will clear out quickly. That sunshine; however, is NOT expected to warm up temperatures much. We're once again stuck in the upper 30s. Not to worry though, we'll feel a nice temperature spike by Sunday.

If you're already putting together plans for the second half of your weekend, it'll look and feel good outside. Temperatures on Sunday should surge to near 50°F under partly sunny skies.
