Special Information:

Temperatures this morning are close to average for this time of year in the mid to upper 20s. The problem is these temperatures won’t be warming up much throughout the day and we’ll likely end up with afternoon highs about 10 to 15 degrees below average. Look for highs in the low 30s in most locations. We’ll keep a chance for scattered flurries and light snow showers throughout the day. The chance for flurries continues tonight into Sunday morning. Temperatures will remain chilly on Sunday with highs in the low to mid 30s.

The cold weather will give way to gradually rising temperatures as we head throughout next week. Highs will be in the upper 30s Monday and Tuesday and likely into the 40s for the middle of the week. We’ll be tracking a storm system that could bring us some snow or rain late Tuesday into Wednesday.

 
Alerts: None
            
Inconvenient Weather: Chilly weather all weekend with scattered flurries and light snow showers possible today and tonight.
 
Planning Your Day:  After a chilly start, temperatures won’t get much warmer today, topping out in the low 30s.
