The day begins with clouds thickening across the area and frigid temperatures once more. Our next weather maker slowly approaches through the day, with light snow entering from the west during the afternoon. The snow picks up a bit in intensity just in time to make the Friday evening commute messy, so be extra cautious of slippery roadways. As the evening progresses, the snow will taper, leaving behind 1-4” across the area.
Another cold day is expected Saturday. Northwest winds in the wake of the disturbance will trigger some lake effect snow showers to the northwest, otherwise skies will be partly sunny with highs in the middle to upper 20s. Sunday, plenty of sunshine and a warming pattern help bump temperatures to near 30 degrees.
The first half of next week is going to be messy, but temperatures will turn milder. With temperatures cold to start on Monday, a wintry mix is possible as a warm front lifts to our north, before changing over to rain as temperatures rise above freezing. Tuesday a few more showers are possible with highs in the middle to upper 40s. by Wednesday, some steadier showers are expected, with temperatures hovering near the 50 degree mark. All quiets down for Thursday with partly cloudy skies and temperatures near 40 degrees.
Have a great weekend!
