Rowan weather: Rain falling, temperatures will, too
10:30 a.m.: Hold on to your umbrellas! The National Weather Service now says we have a chance of rain, snow and sleet tonight before 11 p.m., then a slight chance of rain and snow from 11 p.m.-midnight. Little accumulation is expected.
It has already fallen to 50 degrees.
As promised, we’re starting out warm, at 62 degrees, and rainy. Temperatures are expected to fall to around 41 degrees by 5 p.m. The chance of rain is 100 percent, and the wind will blow from the north northeast at 9-11 mph, not nearly as gusty as last night’s winds.
Tonight there is a 40 percent chance of rain, mainly before 10 p.m. The low will dip down to 25 degrees. North of our area, some freezing rain is possible. Northeast winds will continue at 8-10 mph.
The sun will come back Friday, but it’s going to be cold, with a high of only 38 degrees. It’s going to be even colder Friday night, with a low of 22.
Saturday will be sunny, too, and warmer, with a high near 53, a good day to spend a little time outside. The low will be 31.
Mostly sunny for Sunday and a bit warmer, with a high around 56; the low will be 38 degrees.
Monday will be very much the same, with a high near 59 and a low of 39.
And nothing changes much Tuesday, either, with a high of 58 and a low of 40.
Wednesday will be partly sunny and near 57, so it looks like a pretty decent week ahead, good news for people who are sick of out cold, wet winter.
