Temperatures are chilly at 47-54 over the area, but slow, slow clearing trend is beginning to take shape.  Some sun is appearing in our northwest, which is where the warmest temperatures are located presently.

Some patchy frost may develop in sheltered areas in the northeast & east late tonight.  It is like a second Dogwood Winter (not quite to Blackberry Winter yet) with this chill!

Lows will run in the mid 30s northeast & upper 30s to lower 40s west as long as skies clear.  Winds will be east at 3-6 mph, which will limit a more widespread frost episode.

Clouds will quickly increase & thicken through the Saturday morning hours as the wind increases, as well.

Rainfall is coming in earlier for Saturday, as well. 

Looks like it will overspread area in the afternoon after it turns cloudy in the morning to midday hours with a chilly, brisk east wind at 11-23 mph.

Highs will run 57-61.

This rainfall will taper to just some occasional rain showers Saturday night to Sunday morning with lows in the 40s.

Then, as cold upper low moves in, a scattering of showers & t'showers will develop Sunday (with even a brief peek or two of sun).

Isolated small hail or graupal could occur with a cell or two given the relatively low freezing levels & the cold air aloft.

Highs will run 55-60.

A few spotty showers/t'showers are possible Monday as clouds bubble up in the cold air aloft of the upper low.

Highs of 57-62 are likely after morning lows in the 40s.

Total rainfall Saturday-Monday should run 0.25-0.80" for the area.

After 37-43 Monday night, we skyrocket to 68-74 Tuesday, then 74-78 Wednesday, but a wave or two of showers & storms will pass.

Total rainfall for Wednesday should run 0.40-0.80".

Highs Thursday should run 65-70 with 41-45 Thursday night.

Drier, warmer, windy weather should follow with the next decent potential of widespread rainfall in the area May 24 (after Wednesday).
