Rowan weather: Get ready for rain

Well, the National Weather Service has taken the words snow and sleet out of the Friday forecast, but we’re going to have a cold, cold rain.

Today, it’s still partly sunny, with a high near 52, and a low around 36.

Friday would be a good day to stay in bed, if that were an option. The chance of rain is 90 percent, mainly after 11 a.m. We’ll only reach 39 degrees for a high. A tenth to a quarter inch of rain is possible.

Rain continues into Friday night, with a low of 35 and an east northeast wind that will shift to the north, increasing the misery. A half to three-quarters of an inch of rain is possible.

Oh, Saturday. The chance of rain goes down to 60 percent, and it will be mostly cloudy with a high near 43 and a west northwest wind around 5-10 mph. The low will be around 30.

We should notice an improvement Sunday, with mostly sunny skies and a high near 50. The low will be 35.

But here comes trouble again. Monday was have a 30 percent chance of rain and snow, though the day will end up partly sunny with a high near 48. And the low will be a cold 26.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny, but fairly chilly, too, with a high of 42. The low will be 26 again.

Full sun returns Wednesday, but the high will be only 42.

So, don’t put away your winter clothes just yet. And keep the rain/snow boots handy.
