CK-TITAN RADAR ANALYSIS



<< << As a warm front moves through,
several waves of showers will ride
along it. This will produce cloudy
skies and the occassional shower. Most
areas should see lows above freezing
tonight, but those in sheltered valleys
should be cautious when heading out
tonight and early Saturday. Saturday
starts with plenty of clouds (20%
sprinkle/shower) with partly sunny
skies developing by the afternoon.
Temperatures get a push into the mid
50s for the first day of the weekend.
Saturday night will be variably cloudy
with lows near 40. Sunday is cloudy
with a very slight chance of a late
afternoon or evening shower, but
generally it'll just be a mainly cloudy
day. The beginning of next week will be
headlined with warmer temperatures.
Monday and Tuesday expect highs in the
mid and upper 60s with partly sunny


skies. Rain chances are very low during
this time period. Wednesday calls for
highs in the mid 60s with sun and
clouds and a 30% chance of showers.
Rain chances move up to 40% Thursday
with cooler temperatures as a front
crosses the NEWS7 viewing area. >> >>
