A quiet end to the work week, but another Clipper will bring a chance of flurries and colder temperatures this weekend.

Friday:
Mix of clouds and sun, breezy, and milder
Highs: 45-50 degrees
Wind: SW --> SE 5-10 mph
Tonight:
Cloudy with a 20% chance of light snow/flurries
Lows: 25-30 degrees
Wind: NW 5-15 mph
Saturday:
Highs: 34-38 degrees
Wind: WNW 10-15 mph

Milder highs to wrap up the work week, as temperatures soar into the mid and upper 40s. As a cold front approaches, clouds will increase late tonight and a few flurries or light snow showers will pass through the overnight hours. A dusting is possible, at best. Behind the front tomorrow, breezy and colder with highs dropping back into the upper 30s. Another weak disturbance passes through overnight Saturday, so again, a few flurries are possible, but nothing substantial. The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday will be quite mild with highs nearing the 50 degree mark.

Enjoy it while it lasts, as temperatures will plummet behind another strong cold front Tuesday. That front may squeeze out a few light snow showers Tuesday, as temperatures fall into the 30s and eventually the upper 20s for highs through the middle and end of next week.
