Forecast Discussion

Speaking of tonight, temperatures will reach their lowest point in weeks under a mainly clear sky, right near zero the further south you go, and as cold as ten below further to the north. One good thing is winds will be calm tonight, so wind chill shouldn't be a factor. Warmer air quickly starts to return Saturday as the arctic high transitions to the east. Highs will rebound into the upper 20's under mostly sunny skies. A weak disturbance passes through Saturday night into Sunday morning with some spotty snow showers, but otherwise we'll remain quiet all weekend.

Our warming trend will continue into early next week, with highs back into the upper 30's both Sunday and Monday. This is in advance of the next storm system, which arrives Monday night into Tuesday. Right now, this storm will once again pass to our west, meaning a mixed bag of precipitation overnight and into the early morning, before changing to all rain the rest of Tuesday.

Beyond this, some lake effect snow showers could touch off and be around Wednesday with colder air on the back side of the departing low. Colder, but not nearly as cold as today, for next Thursday with highs back in the 20's and lows into the teens. Another massive high pressure pushes south late next week, meaning quiet weather into next weekend.
