Weather: Drizzle and Flurries

Drizzle and Flurries

By Gerard Roe
Staff MEteorologist

A large mid-level low pressure system translating slowly eastward will bring some unsettled weather for today and the early part of tomorrow. Some smaller scale disturbances embedded in the larger flow will bring precipitation over the area beginning this afternoon. At the same time, at the surface, colder air is pushing in from the northwest. It looks as though at this stage, the precipitation will begin as drizzle, but change over to snow before fizzling out on Saturday morning. With the wet ground, there should be a only little accumulation at most. The rest of the weekend looks to be clearing but chilly.

Today: Cloudy and becoming cold. Patches of drizzle beginning around noon. Changing to flurries in the evening. The high will be in the early morning and temperatures will fall slowly during the day. Daytime temperatures around 40F (4C).

Tonight: Continuing flurries. Low 30C (-1C).

Saturday: Any snow ending in the morning. Some patches of sun appearing later. High 38C (3C). Low 26F (-3C).

Sunday: A mix of sun and clouds. Light flurries possible. High in the low 30s (0C). Low around 25F (-4C).
