As I mentioned yesterday, we’re taking a break from our area music artists but be watching for more featured musicians in the coming weeks. And be looking for our NCL exclusive weather sponsor that will begin on this very cast starting over the coming weekend. They’re folks we all know, and they are about to announce an exciting expansion.

Tuesday started cloudy and rainy like the photo above over Devil’s Knob. As the day wore on most locations picked up from a quarter to just over a half an inch of rain. A few heavy downpours moved in, but nothing terrible. By Tuesday night rains tapered off, but the winds started howling after midnight. A few snow showers can be expected this morning before skies give way to sunshine in the afternoon, but it will be a blustery day with gusty WNW winds in the morning hours. They should settle down a little by afternoon. It will be a very cold night overnight with mid teens in the valley and around 10Â° degrees on the mountains.
Chances for rain or snow reenter the forecast by Friday night into Saturday morning. By next week we warm to the lower 60’s by Monday.
