Forecast Last Updated at Monday, March 2, 2015 at 5:28PM

Clouds and Light Rain Return

Midday clearing lead to a noticeably milder afternoon. That's short-lived, it turns cloudy and cooler tonight and stays rather raw for your Tuesday, along with occasional drizzle or light rain. Steadier rain and a surge of milder air arrives Wednesday, before clearing occurs on Thursday. Thursday will be briefly colder before a moderating trend takes us into next weekend.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front moved across the area this morning, heralding a brief period of dry weather this afternoon through early tonight. High pressure that’s wedging-in behind the front tonight and Tuesday will promote cool/raw conditions tonight and Tuesday along with periods of light rain or drizzle after midnight. Northern foothill locations closest to the foot of the mountains could see a brief spell of freezing rain or drizzle early Tuesday morning before going to rain.

Steady or rising temperatures Tuesday night will lead to a milder Wednesday, with steady rain arriving Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night as a strong cold front pushes into the region. Rain could end briefly as a wintry mix or snow Thursday morning before skies clear and we have a temporary chill-down that will last into Friday.

Thereafter, we embark on a moderating trend that will take us into next weekend. In addition, with high pressure appearing to maintain control for a few days, the weather looks mostly clear and rather nice through Saturday. Moisture returning by late in the weekend could lead to better rain chances by Sunday, however.
