Clouds around this afternoon will clear this evening. Breeze will remain with winds out of the north-northwest 5-10 mph. Temperatures fall from the low 20s to the middle teens.
Arctic high provides clear skies and a very cold start with morning lows ranging from the mid single digits to around 10. Abundant, beautiful sunshine for much of the day will start the weekend off nicely despite ending the month with well below average temperatures once again. Highs will reach the mid 20s with a few spots hitting the upper 20s.

Next system is very complicated. Pay attention because we have big changes to the second half of the weekend. Mostly clear night Saturday into Sunday will allow temperatures to drop to the teens so it will be a very cold morning Sunday. Clouds will race in obscuring the sunshine. With the cold temperatures we will see snow stream in quickly as early as 1pm and could accumulate over a period a few hours. It becomes steadier in the late afternoon and may even mix with freezing rain as warmer air moves in aloft while surface temps remain near freezing.

There is some concern for ice accumulations around .10”. We may see a couple of inches of snow before it starts changing to freezing rain. Precipitation should be gone by 7am Monday. Clouds will break up and we see sunshine return. With temps starting in the low 30s, I think we can hit 42. Cold air will take awhile to spill in but eventually does. Tuesday, lows will bottom out in the teens. Plenty of sunshine until the clouds drift in by afternoon. Highs will warm to the mid and upper 30s. The next storm system moves in late in the evening with a mix then quickly changing to plain rain as warmer air rushes in. Rain showers will be likely much of the day Wednesday. Highs could warm to near 50. Colder, drier conditions return for Thursday and Friday.
