Today still features wrap around clouds and we wont be able to rule out some additional hit and miss moisture, but we are only talking about a few hundredths to a tenth or two. Tomorrow clouds give way to some sun. While we are still chilly, we should be a bit warmer thanks to the sun and winds that will slowly be turning more westerly. Saturday is milder with Partly sunny skies.

Precipitation at mid-month depends heavily on cold air vs warm air battle. We do not see a lot of west to east frontal movement in that time frame, but cold air incursions out of canada will allow moisture to get wrung out with no significant frontal complex.
