Clouds build tonight, especially late tonight ahead of our next system. Winds diminish tonight but stay out of the SW which keeps us mild overnight. Mild temperatures will take us into the weekend.

Three waves of rain will impact the region over the next several days. One arrives Friday morning, another by Saturday morning, and the third, by later Sunday. Beyond that, temperatures start to dip Sunday night into the beginning of next week, and by Monday, we’ll have some snow showers in the picture. There may also be some localized lake effect snow. Something we’ll be tracking for you heading for the weekend.

Temperatures moderate by later next week.
