BLUSTERY END TO THE WEEK

me-dma-futurecast-wind-gust-arrows-pmWe end the week with brisk winds and cold conditions. Northwest winds 10-20 mph with gusts to 30mph will drop wind chills to the teens and 20s. That is what you need to dress for. Also, with the cold wind gliding over the still warm waters of Lake Erie, lake effect snow is likely. Some of the light snow showers and flurries may stream into parts of our area. Even though it will feel like the 20s, high temperatures climb to the lower and middle 30s. Be prepared to layer up if heading out.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK

High pressure builds in Saturday allowing for more sunshine to mix in and out of the clouds. The breeze is not as strong but winds out of the west-northwest still expected around 5 to 15mph. They do calm overnight leading to a cold morning Sunday. After morning lows in the middle 20s, temperatures only budge to the lower 30s Saturday. Clouds quickly move in as a warm front lifts through early Sunday. The atmosphere is cold enough to support a few snow flurries. The day is overcast and chilly in the middle and upper 30s. Towards the evening, as a cold front approaches, the chance for a few snow showers returns. Overnight, temperatures drop to near freezing, keeping the threat for snow showers around. Models indicate some warmer air mixing in early Monday supporting a change or mix with sleet and or rain showers. Still some differences and of course, timing and temps are key to what type of precipitation we get. We’ll continue to fine-tune the forecast in the next few days. Tuesday into Wednesday, another front with strong upper-level energy arrives, again, giving us another chance for a few snow showers and possible mix. Highs are cold in the 30s both days with Wednesday being the coldest in the lower 30s. Another Arctic punch heads in for Thursday with morning lows in the teens and highs in the 20s!
