One more night with single digit lows, then warming
OVERALL: One more night with single digit lows then we are on a warming trend the next several days. A front will stall across the area Friday night into Saturday and may produce a few flurries then move north as a warm front through the day bringing milder air, which we have not seen in quite some time, followed by a cold front that arrives Sunday.
TONIGHT: Breezy through the evening but high pressure building in will help to ease them overnight. Clear skies and much lighter winds will lead to one more frigid night in the single digits.
TOMORROW: After a cold morning, bright sunshine and a southwesterly flow will warm us to the upper 20s to near 30. Winds will pick up a bit in the afternoon and a few high clouds will drift in towards evening as the next frontal system approaches from the northwest.
FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy skies but milder temps in the upper 30s to near 40. There is a small rain or snow chance late towards evening as a cold front slides in and stalls. Overnight, it may produce a few flurries but nothing more.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The cold front stalls then moves north as a warm front. This will allow for milder air to transport in helping boost our temps above average to around 40 degrees. There could be a few showers late in the day but nothing more than that at this time. So there looks to be plenty of dry hours to take care of outdoor activities. Overnight into Sunday, a cold front drops in and may produce a few showers towards morning and perhaps early afternoon but not expecting much. Temperatures will be well above freezing snow wintry precipitation not a concern at this time. Highs Sunday should be able to reach the low 40s after morning lows in the low to mid 30s. Winds will pick up behind the front out of the northwest 10-15 mph.
Ground Hog Day is Sunday. Will he see his shadow and keep winter around longer or will he not, bringing a sign that spring is just around the corner! Our chances of him seeing his shadow are pretty high when you look at his record and that means 6 more weeks of winter. Let’s hope he doesn’t!
SUPER BOWL OUTLOOK: There could be an isolated shower otherwise; a few scattered clouds and breezy winds with temperatures around the upper 30s at kick off. Can you guess the kick off temperature? If so, you could win a $599 gift card from Best Buy!!
