More clouds tonight with snow showers for northern tier tomorrow

Snow showers continue for the morning. The high will be near 56 degrees. Plain rain falls throughout the night into Friday with overcast conditions.

WARMING TREND INTO MID WEEK: Temperatures above normal in the upper 30's to Low 40's by Thursday.

The rain will return in the early hours of the morning, initially to the west, but will spread eastwards to all areas overnight. Rain will pick up through the night, spreading east with fresh, gusty winds. Rain will increase Friday night and Saturday.

Saturday won't be much different - although there will be some dry intervals at stages. Expect more rain for Sunday with a stray storm possible.

"Highest temperatures of 9 to 12C".

A few showers are expected to be left over on Sunday.

It will be cloudy Saturday before rain begins in the afternoon as temperatures increase to near 50 degrees, the weather service said. Frost and icy patches will develop also, with lowest temperatures of -3° to 0°. Lowest temperatures will range from -3°C to 0°C. With the passage of the warm front it will not be as cold tonight. Locations most likely to be impacted will be much of the area, except for the northwest Big Country. A low risk for damaging wind exists with any stronger storms on Sunday, too.

Tuesday will be cold, with good sunny spells and some scattered wintry showers for a time.
