CLIPPER:  It seems to be part of our everyday language lately.  Another clipper is set to glide through today.  Expect clouds to thicken today with highs bumping up to near freezing.  As we move toward the evening commute, a quick burst of snow arrives with the best shot during the evening commute, tapering toward midnight.  A few snow showers are leftover for the overnight.  Expect a quick coating south to 2” north as this clipper races by.  Tonight, we drop to the upper 20s as a gusty wind picks up.

FRIDAY & SATURDAY:  Strong winds begin to force colder air into play on Friday.  It’s mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 20s early before temperatures begin to drop.  We’ll bottom out in the single digits by Saturday morning with wind chills in the negative single digits.  Stay warm!  Saturday, the sun is back but cold air grips us as the core of high pressure moves over us.  Expect winds to slowly relax with highs only in the low 20s.

NEXT STORM:  Our next storm takes shape on the heels of a cold and sunny Saturday.  By Sunday, a new storm system will be strengthening as moves closure to us from the south.  Expect clouds through the day Sunday with light snow chances increasing later in the day, lasting overnight and finally tapering in the afternoon on Monday.  It’s windy and cold with temps in the middle to upper 20s.  The set-up of this storm continues to evolve so we’ll need to monitor it to determine impacts and accumulations.
