EARLY MORNING Rain will overspread the area from south to north during the early morning. Temperatures will be just a touch above freezing, so the precipitation should be wet instead of icy, though it’s going to be a very close call in some locations. A period of icing isn’t impossible around daybreak to the north and northeast of G.R. Winds will be light from the east..
LATER TODAY Most of the rain will lift north of Kent Co. by mid-afternoon, with only a widely scattered light shower or period of drizzle in the mid-late afternoon. Temperatures will be in the low 40s on tomorrow afternoon with a light east wind
WEEKEND WEATHER The weekend will be relatively warm with highs in the low 50s. Plenty of cloud cover will continue to prevail and conditions will be generally dry, though there is still a chance of a passing shower both Saturday and Sunday. Much of the time it will not be raining. Winds Sat. will be southeast around 10 mph.
LOOKING AHEAD Mild weather relative to average continues thru Wednesday of next week with a few scattered, mainly light showers and high temps. in the low 40s Monday and Tuesday. Colder air will start to move in, changing our rain to snow late Weds. with snow showers and at least light accumulations on Thursday and Friday. Highs Thurs. and Fri. will be in the low-mid 30s.
