Dynamic double-cored low pressure will bring an unsettled day today with overcast skies and precipitation beginning in the morning, perhaps as a touch of a wintry mix. Watch for localized slick spots. Temperatures will rise, however, turning anything to plain rain. High temperatures will warm to about 45 but with a gusty east wind at about 25 mph, it’ll still feel pretty chilly and raw. Intermittent rain will continue tonight, totaling 1 to 2 inches.
