Mild But Breezy Today, Light Rain/Snow Showers PM?
Snow Likely This Weekend
Thursday’s Forecast High: 38F / Tonight’s Forecast Low: 7F…
It’s going to be another mild day with highs in the 30s, but also another breezy day… making those temps feel more like the 20s. Winds today will be from the W to NW 10-20 mph, with gusts to around 30 mph. A cold front will drop south across the region this afternoon, bringing passing clouds and a slight chance of light rain or snow showers.
Flurries could linger early this evening, otherwise expect skies to become partly cloudy tonight. It will be much colder tonight with lows in the single digits. NW winds 10-20 mph will cause wind chills in the 0F to -15F range.
Lots of sunshine, but cold Friday with highs only in the teens. NW winds 5-15 mph will cause wind chills in the single digits for much of the day.
Looking Ahead… We continue to track a storm system that will bring a good chance of snow Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. The snow could linger into Sunday morning as well. It’s looking like a good bet that we will see an accumulating snow with travel impacts, so Saturday will be an ALERT DAY… especially into Saturday evening and night. Travel impacts could linger into Sunday as well. A very early call for potential snowfall this weekend would be in the 2″ to 6″ range. The snow is still almost 60 hours out, so stay tuned for updates! High temps this weekend will be around 20F Saturday, then mid-upper 20s Sunday.
Slight chance of snow Monday, as some models are hinting a system tracking by to our south may clip parts of our area. Best chances would be in our southern counties. Highs Monday in the mid 20s. Mostly cloudy Tuesday with highs in the low-mid 20s.
A weak disturbance could bring a slight chance of light snow showers or flurries Wednesday, with highs in the mid 20s. Mostly cloudy Thursday with highs in the upper 20s, then partly sunny Friday with highs in the low 30s.
Have a good Thursday! -Bill Graul
