Forecast Last Updated at Friday, February 27, 2015 at 6:55PM

Cold & Quiet Tonight

Tonight will be cold with overnight scattered clouds. In fact, below-normal temperatures will be with us right on through the upcoming weekend before we climb out of the hole early next week. Clouds will also return for the weekend, along with some chilly light rain or drizzle by late Sunday. Unsettled but increasingly milder weather will take us into next week.

Forecast Discussion

Black ice issues will abound for the next couple of mornings, so keep that in mind if you are hitting the roads first thing. Tonight will be cold but dry. Clouds will increase late tonight.

A cold air damming signature sets up shop this weekend, which means that high pressure will be nosing-down the eastern slopes of the Appalachians. This promotes more cloudiness, and perpetuates the chill. It’s also possible that we will have just a dab of freezing drizzle or light sleet first thing Sunday morning before cold air wins the battle. We’re omitting that from the forecast at the moment, however.

By late Sunday and Sunday night, more light rain and drizzle will break out across the Foothills. Moderating temperatures will kick into gear early next week. One cold front will come through on Monday and stall-out just south of the area, before returning as a warm front by late Tuesday.

Low-pressure ejecting out the Plains will drag another cold front through here first thing on Thursday. So, it's not going to rain all the time, but there will be a few periods of rainfall next week.
