February feels freezing, Groundhog’s forecast forthcoming

What we’re tracking:

  • Cloudy, but chilly night ahead
  • Cooler temps leading into the weekend
  • Weekend wintry mix possible

Skies will stay mainly cloudy tonight, but the high, thin clouds won’t do much in terms of helping to keep any sort of warmth in. Overnight lows are expected to drop down into the low to mid 20s tonight. Even though winds will start to relax overnight, a 5 to 10 mph wind out of the north is still strong enough to add that extra cold bite to the air. Wind chill temperatures will range from the upper single digits to upper teens as you wake up tomorrow morning.

A mix of sun and clouds are expected leading into the weekend, as well as high temperatures only topping out in the 30s. There is a slight chance of wintry mix transitioning to drizzle and light rain for early Saturday as temperatures warm into the 40s. However, there’s not a whole lot of moisture associated with this system, so it doesn’t look to be a significant round of precipitation. Otherwise, we’ll trade out the mostly cloudy skies on Saturday for mainly sunny skies for Sunday, with highs near 50°.
