Bitterly cold wind chills, light weekend snow chances

Some light snow and flurries will continue to taper off through this evening. Otherwise, the cloudy conditions stick around through the night tonight as temperatures fall back into the single digits. A light north breeze at 5 to 10 mph will keep wind chills near zero, if not a few degrees below zero, through daybreak on Saturday.

A cloudy start to the weekend will see some of that cloud cover thin out and move out, allowing some sunshine to return. Even with some sunshine in the mix for Saturday afternoon, temperatures stay cold. Highs will only get into the upper teens and low 20s. Through much of the day on Saturday though, wind chills will stay in the single digits and low teens due to a north wind at 5 to 10 mph.

Things start to change as day turns to night on Saturday. First, the cloud cover will build in during the evening. Saturday evening still looks to stay dry before our next snow chance inches closer and closer by midnight. Even when the snow isn’t falling, the night will stay cloudy as temperatures once again fall into the single digits.

That snow chance will be confined to Sunday morning, including the early morning commute. As of right now, it looks to be a quick blast of snow, dropping anywhere from just a dusting to upwards of an inch of snow. That snow wraps up by the afternoon, with increasing sunshine through the rest of the day on Sunday. That added sunshine will go along with temperatures bouncing back into the 30s.

Sunday night will be eerily similar to Saturday night. Once again, the cloud cover will build right back in ahead of yet another snow chance. This snow chance looks to be a little bit more promising though, spanning from late Sunday night into the morning hours of Monday. As of right now, a dusting to 2 inches of snow is possible by the time this round of snow wraps up Monday afternoon.

Beyond early next week’s snow chances, a stretch of drier weather will move in. Temperatures will be a bit of a roller coaster ride though. High temperatures in the 30s for Sunday will slide back into the 20s and teens through the middle of the upcoming work week. As next weekend gets closer, that’s when some warmer, more mild temperatures will start to move back in.
