Cold air will continue to flow into the region tonight on breezy west winds. As that cold air moves in, look for occasional flurries. They will be most widespread this evening, but should let up some as the evening wears on. Temperatures will eventually drop into the teens by morning. However, a west wind at 10-20 mph will produce wind chills in the 5 to 15 above range late tonight and tomorrow morning.
Wednesday will be mostly cloudy and colder with highs only in the mid 20s. It will remain breezy with west winds 10-20 and gusts to 30 mph possible. There is a chance for a few snow showers in the far north tomorrow, but the rest of us should stay dry. However... we'll all see a chance at some light snow or flurries Wednesday night into Thursday morning. The cause will be a disturbance tracking across the region.
Looking Ahead... It will remain cold through the end of the week with highs in the low-mid 20s Thursday, then upper teens to low 20s Friday. At least there's a chance we could see some sunshine Friday. Overnight lows will be in the teens.
Many forecast models are hinting at a chance for some accumulating snow over the weekend. What is not certain is the timing and just how much snow we might see. As of now, most models just have a slight chance for a little light snow late Friday night into Saturday... then increasing snow chances Saturday and Saturday night, with snow lingering into Sunday. Stay tuned for updates through the week about this chance of snow. High temps over the weekend will be in the mid-upper 20s.
Next week looks to start dry, but mostly cloudy and colder Monday with highs near 20º. Another chance of snow Monday night into Tuesday. Wednesday looks dry, but even colder with highs only in the teens.
Have a great night and bundle up! -Cory Malles
