A beautiful Presidents’ Day holiday Monday kicked off a week that will see two more days of above-average temperatures, followed by a quick drop and the threat of a wintry mix and plain rain for the remainder of the work week.
The first slight chance of showers will come Tuesday morning, likely before 10 a.m. It will remain cloudy before periods of rain move in after 5 p.m., but the daytime high will be 52 degrees. The rain will linger into Wednesday, but move out by about 1 p.m., followed by gradual clearing, ending in sunny skies. The high will be a mild 62 degrees, and areas inland from the beaches have the potential to see a high of closer to 65.
Then, on Thursday, the chance of snow arrives before 10 a.m., followed a change to rain and snow between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., then a final change to all rain after 3 p.m. Little or no snow accumulation is expected Thursday morning, the National Weather Service said.
The rain, unfortunately, will continue into Friday afternoon, the NWS said. The sun is unlikely to return until Saturday, when temperatures will drop back down to the mid-30s.
