Simpson predicts warm sun before rain, light snow


There will be good opportunities this weekend to get out of the house and enjoy some sun and warmth.

Clear skies overnight with lows near 32 will lead to highs in the mid to upper 50s, Making Saturday’s conditions one of the warmest days of the month, according to Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

“If we get above 56 it will be the second warmest day of the month,” Simpson said.

Rain is expected Sunday, the steadiest expected around sunrise, with highs in the mid 50s and breezy conditions in the afternoon.

Light snow with light accumulations on the grass is expected Monday as a strong cold front moves into the area. Simpson said temperatures should be above freezing, making Monday’s morning commute not so slippery.

“For the Reds opener at 4 p.m., likely mostly cloudy skies on the river with temperatures in the low 40s,” Simpson said.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be sunny but chilly with morning temperatures in the 20s and afternoon highs in the low to mid 40s.

Simpson’s forecast shows temperatures increasing to the 50s by week’s end.
