Bundle up for weekend: There may not be snow, but it will be cold

One more day for umbrellas, then time to bundle up

Looks like we are in for another day of rain. The National Weather Service predicts that we will receive between a tenth and a quarter of an inch of precipitation today. Rain chances are forecast at 80 percent. Thankfully it looks like the rain will taper off by the end of the day when skies should be partly cloudy with a chilly 39 degrees predicted by Saturday morning. Bundle up. Saturday looks to be sunny and cool with a high near 50 degrees and a little windy.

The season’s first freeze might be next week. The National Weather Service forecasts lows dipping to 29 degrees Tuesday morning.
