I have been struggling to figure out next week's forecast. It is finally coming into focus a bit better, though there are still uncertainties. As of now, it appears that there will be 3 separate low pressure systems impacting our weather between Sunday and Thursday. The first will bring some rain on Sunday, though it probably won't last all day. The second will bring rain from Monday night into Tuesday morning, and some snow could be mixed in, though probably with little or no accumulation.

The third system is most worth watching. It will bring rain from Wednesday afternoon into Thursday, and this rain may change to snow for a while before ending on Thursday. Typically, rain-to-snow events like this one don't give us a lot of accumulating snow, but there is enough uncertainty that it is worth keeping an eye on. Sunshine should return for Friday and Saturday, but temperatures will be colder.

Other Information
I thank God for the ability He has given me to forecast the weather with some measure of accuracy, to help you plan and prepare. Let us remember, though, that only God knows for certain what will happen in the future. -- Then He also said to the multitudes, "Whenever you see a cloud rising out of the west, immediately you say, 'A shower is coming'; and so it is. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, 'There will be hot weather'; and there is. Hypocrites! You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time?" (Luke 12:54-56) Compare my forecast with others in the area:
