A deepening low pressure system over the southwestern section of the U.S. is expected to track east and slightly north over the next few days, increasing our precipitation chances halfway through the weekend.
Clouds will begin to increase late Friday, leaving us with a mostly cloudy Saturday. Moisture will filter into the region late Saturday night, with showers approaching from the south after midnight into early Sunday morning.
Temperatures at ground level will stay above freezing Saturday night and Sunday, but air saturated just above the surface will likely be below 32 degrees, allowing for a few snow showers to mix with rain.
Any snow will melt as it makes contact with the ground, meaning no accumulation is expected for the NewsChannel 5 viewing area, but don't be caught off guard if you see a few flakes mixing with rain if you wake up early Sunday morning.
Any lingering precipitation Sunday will transition back to rain and taper off by afternoon.
The pattern for next week looks unsettled, with near average temperatures and chances for rain returning Monday night into early Tuesday.
By mid-week, a stronger low pressure system developing out over the Rockies will arrive by Wednesday, bringing a good chance for showers. That system will likely have colder associated with it, so the 5 On Your Side Weather team will be watching closely for any wintry precipitation.
