Rowan weather: A little rain Saturday

Are you ready, or do you have a marathon planned for tomorrow? Christmas is Monday and we’ll have a bit of rain to deal with before then.

Today will start off cloudy and clear gradually. The high will be 59 with south southwest wind around 6 mph this afternoon.

Tonight will be cloudy with a low of 47 and more south southwest wind, around 5-8 mph.

Saturday brings a 60 percent chance of rain, mainly around 3 or 4 p.m. It will be cloudy and warm, with a high of 66. Watch out for the winds, though, which will be from the south southwest at 11-16 mph. Gusts could be as high as 28 mph, so make sure your inflatables are tied down. A tenth to quarter inch of rain is possible.

The chance of rain goes down to 40 percent Saturday night, with more clouds and a low of 46. Winds will decrease to 5-10 mph from the west southwest, but gusts up to 18 mph are possible.

Christmas Eve will have a 20 percent chance of showers, but be partly sunny and 55, with north northeast wind around 5 mph, calming in the afternoon.

Expect a low of 32 Sunday night.

Christmas Day will be mostly sunny, but much cooler, with a high of 44 and a cold low of 26, a good night to sit by the fire with a warm drink.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny and 47, with a low of 28.

Wednesday will be the same, with a high of 47 under mostly sunny skies. The low will be 27.

And Thursday should be partly sunny and cooler, with a high of 43.
