Trails have been on the icy side this
week but that will change over the weekend. Saturday
a.m. will prove best when this current ice pack will
still be in tact.
The frozen winter temps for the daytime highs will
move out of the area Friday through to mid week in
this coming new work week.
Daytime highs are expected to hang in the mid to upper
40's throughout the weekend and on into the new coming
Nighttime lows are expected to be at or just below the
freezing mark. Outlying wooded and hilly terrains
might see temps drop down towards the mid to low
At least the nighttime lows may help slow the thawing
temps a bit but it's looking like it may get a bit on
the sloppy side Sunday on.
As it looks with all of this is the best time for
trail traveling with be in the a.m. hours to early
afternoon before the thawing temps take hold.
The weekend is looking
moisture free. That in itself will help slow our
winter snows.No snow showers are expected and
the next precipitation expected comes Monday night in
the form of some rain showers.
