Colder air moving in for the weekend

blog 28

Cold air and continued snow chances fill the forecast from now into the weekend.  Snow amounts over the next 2 days won’t be all that impressive, but the level of cold air we experience, along with expected windy conditions, will provide some of the most blustery days of the winter season so far.

On Friday, highs are expected in the low 20s with some scattered snow showers and less than a half-inch of accumulation.  The cold air really starts to settle in Friday night into Saturday morning when lows will drop into the single digits.  Wind chill values from Friday night through Sunday morning will be below 0.

Saturday’s highs will only be in the teens with some more scattered light snow falling and less than a half-inch of accumulation.  Temps will fall into the single digits, again, Saturday night.

Sunday’s highs will also be in the teens and another round of snow will be moving in later in the day and continuing into Monday.  It’s still too early to lay down firm snow totals with much certainty.  However, it’s looking like a couple inches of snow could be possible here as we move into the new week.
