Cold Weekend Coming, Watching Snow Potential Late Weekend-Early Next Week
Good evening, everyone! Anything that melted today will refreeze overnight, with low temperatures expected to range from 20 to 29 degrees. Widespread precipitation isn’t expected, but an isolated snow shower can’t be ruled out.
Thursday will feature mostly cloudy conditions in the morning, with clearing skies for the afternoon hours. Some light snow is possible, especially over northern areas. High temperatures will range from 32 to 41 degrees.
Thursday night will feature mostly clear conditions across southern areas, with clouds/light snow likely over northern areas. Near the international border a dusting to an inch of snow can be expected. Low temperatures will range from 21 to 30 degrees.
Friday will feature times of clouds and sun, with temperatures a good 5–10 degrees colder than Thursday for most areas, ranging from 20 to 32 degrees, with 30s only likely across southern areas. Another dusting of snow is possible for areas near the international border in the morning, but any steady light snow will diminish to snow showers by afternoon. Winds on Friday will be gusty, with gusts to 35 miles per hour at times. Wind chills will be in the single digits-teens across the region.
Friday night we should see mostly clear conditions across southern areas, with partly cloudy conditions hanging around near the international border, along with an isolated snow shower. Low temperatures will be cold, ranging from 5 to 16 degrees. It will likely be the coldest night of the fall so far for most, until Saturday night.
The real cold comes Saturday. The morning will feature times of clouds and sun, with mostly sunny skies likely by sunset. The sun won’t do much, with high temperatures expected to range from 16 to 25 degrees across the area. Luckily, the wind will settle down across the area.
Saturday night will feature more chilly conditions, with low temperatures ranging from -5 to +14 degrees. Temperatures below zero will be reserved for northern sections.
Sunday will feature mostly sunny skies, with increasing clouds likely around sunset. High temperatures will be a tad warmer, but still a few degrees below average, ranging from 18 to 32 degrees. 30s Will be reserved for southern areas.
Sunday night it appears that precipitation will overspread the area. At this point, many of us should see at least some snow before any changeover to mixed precipitation occurs (it may not even occur at all). Stay tuned for update information on this event as we head into the weekend.
Have a great evening!
