Updated Thursday 3:00 p.m.
Winter has been a choice between two patterns around here: Warm and dry or mild and wet.
We've had quite a bit of "A" lately and will for a bit longer, but eventually it's back to "Plan B."
Clear sailing in the short term with partly cloudy skies overnight as temperatures drop into the mid-upper 30s.
We'll be a little bit sunnier on Friday with some patchy morning fog and highs in the upper 50s and low 60s.
The weekend is looking flat out gorgeous -- again. Sunshine both Saturday and Sunday after some morning fog burns off with highs around 60. It's weekends like this that make losing that hour for Daylight Savings Time Sunday morning quite painful.
Sunshine holds into Monday although clouds will increase a little (kinda like today) with highs still around 60.
Then comes the pattern switch, although we might eke out one more dry day. Forecast models say rain is coming but disagree whether it arrives Tuesday or Wednesday. We'll start to bring a chance of showers in Tuesday but confidence is much higher in the Wednesday rain than Tuesday. Highs will drop to the mid 50s.
We'll see rain at times through the end of the week once the rain begins, but still fairly high snow levels.
Looks like skiers might need a Plan B as well :(
