Rain continues this evening through the area with temperatures beginning to fall. Rain ends overnight and sunshine returns Wednesday and continues Thursday. Another rain event will occur on Friday.

Cold high pressure over New England, though transient, wedges down the eastern slopes of the Appalachians Thursday. Meanwhile, low pressure develops in the northwestern Gulf Thursday. Clouds return late Thursday and light freezing rain develops late Thursday night or early Friday morning before transitioning to a cold rain in the daylight hours Friday.

Rain ends Saturday morning and the afternoon is dry. Sunday is pleasantly cooler and dry. However, another system approaches Monday bringing a return of clouds and a chilly rain that lasts into Tuesday.
