I hope you enjoyed Thursday's balmy temps, because the next few days in Westminster are going to be colder and wetter than a dog's nose

The National Weather Service is calling for a 70 percent chance of rain Friday, bumping that up to a 100 percent chance overnight. Friday's highs in the low 50s will drop to around 37 degrees.

Rain is likely for Saturday morning, though the weather is expected to clear after 7 a.m. Highs should be in the low 40s during the day. Saturday's overnight forecast is dry and cloudy, but temperatures will plummet to 29 degrees.

On Sunday, NWS is calling for a 90 percent chance of precipitation and highs around 35 degrees. Snow is likely before 1 p.m., when it will change to rain or sleet. A quarter-inch to a half-inch of precipitation is possible.

NWS is calling for a "significant weather event" Sunday night and into Monday morning, saying snow and ice accumulations are likely. Freezing rain or sleet are expected before 9 p.m., with sleet or snow expected between 9 p.m. 1 a.m., at which point it should switch over to rain. As much as three-quarters of an inch of precipitation may fall Sunday night. Temperatures will be around 32 degrees.
