Rowan weather: Snow, sleet, rain, sunny, warm — we’ve got it all

You want some weather? We’re going to go on a wild roller coaster ride over the next week.

We’re starting out cold, but not as cold as in previous days, around 27 degrees. Along with the cold comes a 30 percent chance of snow showers, likely in the afternoon. The high will be 38, with mostly cloudy skies.

Tonight, the low will be 23, with southwest wind at 5-7 mph, shifting to the northwest and bringing in frigid air.

Bundle up for a sunny Saturday, when the expected high is 31 and a northwest wind of 7-13 mph, gusting up to 20 mph, could chill you to the bone. The low will be 13, dangerously cold, with north northwest winds at 5-9 mph.

Sunday will be sunny again, but still very cold, with another high around 31. Winds will calm in the afternoon.

Things get complicated for Sunday night and Monday, and Tuesday, for that matter. The National Weather Service predicts a 20 percent chance of snow Sunday night, with a low of 22.

Rowan County Weather says snow will fall Monday morning, Presidents’ Day, then likely change over to sleet and freezing rain, and finally, rain, with a high of 33. Forecaster Steve Monday expects just half an inch of snow, with ice around a tenth of an inch. The rain that follow will wash the snow and ice away and accumulate to around half an inch. The chance of precipitation is 80 percent.

Rain will continue Monday night, with little temperature change.

Tuesday brings more rain and mostly cloudy skies, along with much warmer temperatures, around 49 degrees. The chance of rain is 70 percent. The low will be 31.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny and 52, with a low of 31

And Thursday looks sunny, with a high of 54.
