The Nor’easter that brought us the rain, freezing rain and sleet Friday morning is being hit hard with dry air. This means that the steady rain expected to last throughout the day is quickly falling apart. Dry air aloft and at the surface pushed in quickly, and shoved the bulk of the rain to the east. What’s left is the western leg of the storm, which is looking to keep around mainly light rain through early afternoon, before completely ending around 2 p.m. Skies work on slowly clearing a bit overnight, with a low of 29 degrees.

It will be partly sunny on Saturday and Sunday, with highs near 60 degrees. Monday and Tuesday will be very nice, with highs in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees under mostly sunny skies.
