Just as this very cold air mass started to moderate just a bit, the next push of Arctic Air is set to arrive early tomorrow morning. It will become breezy by morning with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the teens and 20s. With a sustained northwesterly winds tomorrow, temperatures will be hard pressed to reach the 30 degree mark…and the winds will make it feel even colder.

By Friday, the core of the coldest will recede and temperatures will climb towards the 40 degree mark. Clouds will increase Friday night ahead of the next area of low pressure that will approach our area on Saturday and Saturday night. We are forecasting a 50% chance of rain or a wintry mix developing Saturday afternoon. Current trend support the idea that if it does begin as a mix, it will turn over to plain rain as temperatures are expected in the upper 30s to near 40 degrees Saturday afternoon and remain above freezing Saturday night.
