Our parade of Clippers impacts our weekend, but mainly at night.  Our Friday features plenty of sunshine to start, but clouds start moving in ahead of the first system this afternoon.  There is a chance of light rain showers changing to light snow showers this evening and early overnight. 



Afternoon Forecast

Little accumulation expected.  A few spots West of the city could pick up a coating. Behind the front, it will be cooler and breezy on Saturday. Then, a second disturbance swings through Saturday Night into Sunday morning with another chance of very light snow.  Our jet stream retreats north on Monday (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) and allows us to warm up into the upper 40s to near 50 degrees, but it will be followed by "Polar Vortex Round 2" in the middle of the week with very chilly temperatures. Highs may not make it out of the 20s.
