It should be a rather quiet night. High pressure builds in and helps to clear the skies. Winds are a tad breezy out of the north-northwest 5-12 mph. Temperatures will fall from the low 30s to the mid 20s.
With clear skies and lighter winds, lows will be colder in the upper teens to near 20 to start the morning. Plenty of sunshine for the early part of the day but mid and high level clouds will build back in during the day. Highs will warm to the middle 30s. Clouds thicken towards evening and overnight lows into Thursday will not be as cold in the mid to upper 20s.
An Arctic front swings in on Thursday bringing light snow to the area. Highs will only budge to the low 30s after morning lows in the mid an upper 20s. The story, however, will be the bitterly cold air to follow Thursday night into Friday. Temperatures will plummet to the teens by Thursday evening then continue to tumble fast to the single digits by Friday morning. The colder air will persist into the weekend with another reinforcing shot of frigid air for the second half of the weekend.
Valentine’s Day will be chilly and we could even see widespread snow showers late afternoon into the evening. Highs for Saturday will only reach the mid 20s. Sunday is expected to be the coldest day of the winter season by far with windy, frigid conditions and highs only in the middle teens but temperatures will start to moderate some into early next week even though they continue well below average.
