ARCTIC AIR:  We’re amidst several waves of arctic air expected over the next week or so.  Today, we’re starting in the teens with single digit chills.  The northwesterly breeze continues with a good amount of sunshine.  We make it to the upper 20s to near 30° for highs.  Overnight, we’re back to near 10° with clouds returning.


CLIPPER:  Another clipper rides in for Thursday.  Expect clouds to thicken through the day Thursday with highs nearing 32°.  Snow showers will glide in later in the day and into the evening.  We only expect a few inches at best here.  Friday, any snow tapers early with highs holding near 30° before another arctic blast slides in.  It’s a windy day with clouds breaking late.

A clipper arrives late Thursday, bringing some light, accumulating snow with it.

WEEKEND:  The frigid air arrives through Saturday morning with temps starting in the single digits and chills in the negatives.  We rebound only to near 20° despite the sunshine.  Gusty winds fade late as high pressure builds in.  We start Sunday on a frigid note as well with temps near 12°.  Clouds rush in and our next storm system moves in from the south.  Expect a shot at snow lasting overnight Sunday into Monday.  More to come as the weekend approaches.


NEXT WEEK:  Any snow ends Monday as we top out in the upper 20s before another arctic plunge slams in for Tuesday.

Make it a wonderful Wednesday.
