Light snow arrives Thursday evening.

SNOW CHANCES: Skies are mostly clear at this time, but an approaching clipper system begins increasing clouds later this morning. The clouds quickly thicken through the afternoon. Though the clipper dives well south of the region, it’s enough to clip us with light snow. Snow showers arrive this evening, quickly turning severeinto a light snow that lasts through the night. Highs are in the middle 30s to near 40. The light snow tapers and ends around daybreak, but roads could be slippery for the morning commute. A coating to two inches of accumulation is likely. The rest of Friday is quiet, with some sun starting to break out during the afternoon. Highs are in the middle to upper 30s.

 

 

THIS WEEKEND: Saturday is still on the chillier side, with perhaps a few snow showers or flurries overnight as a weak piece of energy passes through. Sunshine is back for Sunday, and temperatures begin to moderate. You can expect highs to moderate into the 40s through the weekend.

 

 

SUBSTANTIAL WARMING!: On Monday the warming continues with plenty of sunshine. Highs should peak above the 50 degree mark! Temperatures continue to jump under plenty of sunshine on Tuesday. Readings rise into the 60s! Our next system is slow to approach through the middle of the week, delaying showers on Wednesday. Expect partly cloudy skies and perhaps a late shower. Highs are well above seasonable averages, with readings likely approaching 70 degrees!

 

 

Have a great Thursday!
