The quiet weather will last all of 24 hours as rain returns this weekend. That will come due to the second in a series of three cold fronts in a week’s time. Meanwhile, Punxsutawney Phil has prognosticated more winter. Read about that prediction, and what our weather team has to say about it, right here.
Today and Tonight: For Groundhog Day, showers will end early followed by clearing skies. Thermometers will be back below average barely climbing away from the morning temperature and into the upper 50s. Overnight, low temperatures will be in the mid to upper 30s with mostly clear skies early and some returning clouds late.

Up Next: Saturday will be mostly cloudy and cool with highs in the upper 50s. A period of showers is expected thanks to another cold front. Saturday afternoon seems like the arrival time of any rain and therefore outdoor events stand a better chance of staying dry the earlier in the day that they are scheduled. Showers will continue overnight and into Sunday, possibly ending by midday. At this time, amounts look as though they will be much lower than last weekend. Monday will be briefly cooler and dry before yet another cold front brings rain and possibly thunderstorms Tuesday into Wednesday.
