Skies will clear, breeze remains gusty and temperatures will plummet fast into the low teens. Keep in mind with the gusty winds, wind chills will be running in the single digits later tonight and even colder overnight.
Plenty of sunshine to start our weekend as high pressure controls our weather. We get hit with another Arctic air mass dropping lows in the single digits again. Wind chills will be frigid, as cold as -5 or more below zero.
Sunshine will not do much to warm us up. Highs will be well below average around 20 degrees. Winds start out gusty but will die down as the day wears on. Wind chills will run in the single digits to low teens.
Few high clouds start to drift in late in the day and the winds calm overnight. Lows will be cold in the teens early Sunday but with a milder flow and the trough flattening, temperatures will warm to near 30 by afternoon. Clouds will increase and thicken in the afternoon and evening as our next system marches eastward.
Monday looks to start out with a freezing rain, snow mix. It will be below freezing in the morning while the upper levels will be much warmer. Eventually, temperatures should warm enough at the surface to change precipitation to all rain. Highs will only reach the low 30s. Tuesday and Wednesday look quiet and dry with high pressure in control of our weather. But as another trough deepens and settles across the east, temperatures will once again slip below freezing both days. Thursday our next system rides in with moisture and encounters the colder air which may produce accumulating snow. Right now models don’t agree on track and timing of system. Friday, looks quiet and dry with warming temperatures in the upper 30s, finally.
Stay warm and enjoy a nice weekend.
