A clipper brings the chance for light snow across the region late Thursday and through the night.

 

 

 

ANOTHER FRIGID NIGHT

High pressure is currently in control of the region, but it gradually begins losing its grip tonight. Clear skies allow temperatures to plummet quickly this evening into the teens. Clouds begin to build close to daybreak as a clipper system to the west approaches. Overnight low temperatures dip into the single digits to lower teens. The winds relax earlier in the evening, so any wind chill factor added to these readings will be minimal.

 

 

LIGHT SNOW CHANCE

What to expect from this next clipper system.

Clouds quickly thicken through the morning as the clipper gets closer. Some snow showers or light snow moves into the region through mid to late afternoon. Afternoon high temperatures reach the upper 20s to lower 30s, with some breezy winds picking up again. Periods of light snow continue through the night as the clipper passes through. Accumulations will be minor to light, ranging from a coating to as much as 3 inches in some spots. The best chance to see 2 or 3 inches will be along the northern half of the area, whereas the southern half sees the smaller amounts.WebPhoto7

 

 

 

 

 

 

MORE FRIGID AIR

The clipper is gone by Friday morning, but frigid and blustery conditions are in store leading into the weekend. Temperatures are in the middle 20s Friday under partly sunny skies. Saturday, readings are even colder. Temperatures are only near 20 degrees. Factor in the wind chill, and both days feel much colder. There is some moderation into Sunday, but we’ll be watching snow chances late Sunday through early Monday. Monday and Tuesday are quite cold again, with high temperatures falling back into the 20s. Some snow showers are possible again Wednesday.

 

 

 

Have a great night!
