Rowan weather: Oh what a beautiful day

Published 7:47 am Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Most of the week will be sunny and pleasant, then we might have a little surprise Friday or Saturday.

Today will be a great day to be outside, so see if you can sneak out for a few minutes. It will be sunny and 62 with a light breeze from the southwest. Tonight’s low will be 40.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny and 60, but the low drops to 31.

Thursday, mostly sunny again, but cooler, with a high of 51. A 20 percent chance of rain moves in Thursday night, with a low right at the freezing mark.

Friday is the trouble spot. There is a possibility of light now early in the morning, with a low moving up from the Gulf of Mexico. You know that’s usually the place our snow originates. It just depends on how cold the air is. Any snow will eventually change to rain, with little to no accumulation. The chance of rain/snow is 30 percent, but it will still be partly sunny and near 45 for a high. Friday night, the chance of rain moves up to 40 percent. and the low will be again around 32.

And here’s our second chance for light snow Saturday morning, but don’t expect to see much. Look for partly sunny skies with a high of 49. The low will be 29.

Expect mostly sunny skies for Sunday with a high near 50 and a low around 34.

And it’s back to partly sunny for Monday, with a high near 45.
