Patrick Rockey’s Live VIPIR Forecast

More rain, possibly snow on the way.

Most of the weekend is looking dry. Saturday will be the better looking day, with plenty of sunshine. But it’s going to be cold and blustery, especially early on. We’ll make up to temperatures in the upper teens and lower 20s, with wind chills in the single digits. The gusty winds should diminish in the afternoon and the mercury will climb into the upper 30s.

Saturday night, more clouds begin to roll in ahead of a big storm system. We can expect plenty of clouds throughout the day, but only a 20% chance for rain. Expect near-normal highs on Sunday, with temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Rain starts to roll in on Sunday night. Right now it looks like it will start out as just rain. The wet weather stick around for the Monday morning commute. Then as the system starts to move out, we could see a changeover to some sleet and snow on the backside of the storm. The forecast models have been bouncing around a lot with this system, so that forecast is certainly subject to change. Make sure you check in with NewsChannel 3 often throughout the weekend.
