Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 1:31PM
High pressure briefly creates a lull in the active weather patterns we have seen recently. Cloudy skies give way to increasing amounts of sunshine today and tomorrow and temperatures moderate accordingly. However, that trend will be interrupted Thursday as a cold front enters our area. Rain showers return to the forecast Thursday evening and spill over into Friday morning.

High pressure takes hold today and tomorrow leading to welcoming sunshine and moderating temperatures. The uneventful trend only last two days thanks to a line of upcoming cold fronts that will be heading our way. Round One: Thursday, clouds increase as cold front and accompanying low moves through Thursday night. Allowing for light rain showers Thursday evening and remaining through Friday morning.
Round Two: A back-door cold front wraps around a low pressure system from Texas, igniting rain showers for area on Saturday. Round three: Sunday, a double-barrel cold front, with the coldest air of the season, enters our area. That colder air coupled with remaining moisture will lead to snow for Sunday that could linger into Monday. However timing remains still in question, and because of that, the accumulation amount remains uncertain. One thing is for certain, however, Sunday will have the coldest temperatures we've seen this Winter season.
