An arctic front will push through by Saturday morning, and with it, we'll see the potential for some snow showers and a locally heavy snow squall tonight. This may cause a quick coating to an inch of accumulation in some spots, and rapidly deteriorating conditions. So while the snow showers and squalls may not last long, the strong winds and heavy snow could create dangerous traveling conditions. Otherwise, tonight will be mostly cloudy, increasingly windy and cold.
Both days this weekend will be bitterly cold with daytime highs only pushing into the teens and overnight lows near or below zero. This will be accompanied by very windy conditions, which will push wind chills to 10, 20 and possibly even 30 degrees below zero. A few flurries are also possible on Saturday, but they shouldn't amount to much more than a quick coating. Thankfully the winds will die down a bit for Sunday when plenty of sunshine will be present.
Monday won't be as cold, but it will still be below average as highs top out around 30 degrees. The skies will be cloudy and by day's end a few flurries and maybe even a period of snow are possible. At this point minor accumulations are expected into Monday night before the temperatures rise and the snow transitions over to rain for Tuesday. Stay tuned over the weekend for the very latest on the early week storm.
