Forecast Discussion & Concerns
An unsettled pattern looks to continue for the next week to ten days. This is good news for the dry conditions that have plagued the state for some time now. There are currently no severe weather or winter weather threats in sight, just beneficial rainfall.
Winds today will be quite strong at times, ushering in colder and drier conditions. Winds will once again increase on Friday to 20+ mph ahead of our next storm system. Those winds are expected to be with us through Friday night, decreasing by Saturday morning.
