Just a few sprinkles and a little drizzle left. It should be dry late tonight and tomorrow morning, with rain returning from south to north across the area tomorrow afternoon. It looks wet, windy and cold later Weds. night into Thurs. morning with temps. most of Thursday only in the 40s. Friday and Saturday start partly cloudy, but we should become mostly cloudy with instability cumulus and a chance of a light shower or sprinkle. I can’t totally rule out a little sleet mixed in somewhere. We’ll have a chance of scattered frost in low spots Friday and Saturday early morning and maybe even in places like Leota Sunday morning. There’s a full moon now if you get a peak between the clouds.
