Drive with extreme caution at night. The last of the showers will slide in leaving drier and colder weather for Friday. That said, creeks, streams, and rivers will remain swollen, if not above flood stage. Many will continue to rise until morning. Remember, if you come across a road covered in water, turn around and go the other way.
Friday will be mostly cloudy with some late returning sunshine. It will be chilly with highs only in the 30s and lows-mid 40s.
This weekend will be variably cloudy and quite cool. A few rain showers will arrive Saturday evening, briefly mixing with a few wet snowflakes before disappearing early Sunday morning. At this point, only a blanket of snow on elevated surfaces looks likely by early Sunday, especially along the I-40 corridor.
Next week the weather will be very different from what we have had lately. Temperatures will warm into the 50s and 60s with quite a bit of sunshine, giving the average state a good chance to dry out.
