**PATTERN SHIFT: A RETURN TO COOLER TEMPERATURES FOR THE END OF THE WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND**
A cold front will bring a somewhat cooler temperatures to the area today with clouds lingering through the mid afternoon, but some sunshine is expected this afternoon. Highs will top out in the mid 50s. A northwest flow aloft will bring a disturbance through the area later tonight along with a breezy northwest wind. Scattered snow showers are expected to develop late tonight through tomorrow morning as colder air rushes into the area. Highs tomorrow will only reach the mid 40s.
As high pressure moves over the state and to our east on Friday, some sunshine is forecast to return with temps rising at least a few more degrees, but likely falling short of 50.
Our next major weather system appears to enter the region over the weekend. Saturday we may actually enjoy near seasonable weather with highs in the low 50's. This will also come with a slight chance for a showers under otherwise mostly cloudy skies. Rain chances will grow overnight as a low pressure system approaches and is expected to make a pass to the southeast into Easter Sunday. Highs on Sunday will be noticeably lower and a transition to snow showers may actually occur late in the day. Some accumulation cannot be ruled out at this point, but it is still too early to iron out the details.
