Rowan weather: A good day for chili

Get ready for two cold, wet days.

Friday is starting out at 38 degrees, with something falling occasionally from the sky. It makes a little noise, like it might have a little frozen stuff in it, but it is so sparse the streets are dry.

The rain is supposed to start after 9 a.m., with an east northeast wind of 7-9 mph. Our chance of precipitation is 100 percent. Patchy fog may develop this afternoon. Rain totals will be a quarter to a half inch.

The chance of rain drops slightly, to 90 percent, tonight, but the wind picks up, blowing from the north at 5-11 mph, with guests as high as 20 mph. The low will be 36, with more fog. Another quarter to half inch of precipitation is expected.

Saturday, rain in likely before 1 p.m, with a 70 percent chance. Skies will clear later, and the high will reach 45. The wind will still be cold, blowing from the west northwest at 5-10 mph. Saturday night will be quite cold, around 30, with west wind at 3-7 mph.

Looks like we get a little break Sunday, with mostly sunny skies and a high near 51. More west southwest wind at 3-7 mph. Sunday night, though, brings a 30 percent chance of rain, with a low around 34.

The new week starts with a 30 percent chance of rain, mainly between 11 a.m.-2 p.m., then clearing, with a high near 49. Monday’s low will be 26.

That low ushers in some cold air for the rest of the week, with the high Tuesday at 42 degrees under mostly sunny skies. Tuesday’s low will be around 25.

Wednesday will be sunny, but only 45 degrees. The low will be 26 again.

Thursday will be mostly sunny, with a high near 50.
