Getting into today's outlook, much colder air lies to the north and will gradually make its way in by Sunday. For now though, mostly cloudy this afternoon and high's in the upper 40's.
Just to the west, a system is set to work in dumping lots of snow to the north and rain to the south. NO winter precipitation is expected here for the valley (on Saturday) but we will feel very cold air by Sunday and early next week. Showers will move out Saturday night with much cooler air working in from the north and west. Keep in mind Sunday will be breezy (10+mph) so even with high's in the lower 40's, feel-like temps could be in the mid 30's. On MLK Day (Monday), high's will just break freezing here in the valley and overnight low's are expected to be in the teens.
Looking at this system in its entirety, a line of showers and embedded storms will arrive late morning/early afternoon and move out by the evening hours. A stray shower or two is possible late overnight tonight, but overall, we will stay dry. Once this system works east, much cooler and drier air will take its place. High's in the 30's will be the main story on Monday and Tuesday with much needed sunny skies overhead.
That concludes today's forecast but enjoy a seasonable day and end to the work week and keep in mind the cold air that is on the way. Have a good weekend!
