    Today’s the time for any outdoor activities you’d like to enjoy this weekend because the second half will be wet. 

    The Arctic air has moved on, and a southerly flow is now delivering mild weather. 

    Today will feature mostly cloudy skies and temperatures rising to around 50 degrees, according to NOAA.

    By tonight, overnight lows will remain above freezing, dropping to around 40 degrees. There’s a chance of rain overnight, becoming more likely by daybreak.

    Cooler temperatures in the middle 40s and periods of rain are on tap for tomorrow. Some areas could see up to a half-inch of precipitation, according to NOAA.

    It’ll begin to taper off during the early evening hours, leading to mostly cloudy skies. As conditions begin to clear overnight with a westerly flow, winds could be gusting up to 45 miles per hour. 

    The week will begin breezy with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the lower 40s. 

    The National Weather Service continues to monitor the prospect of a midweek winter storm, but as of this morning, the majority of the overnight forecast model guidance keeps the system well offshore.
