Cold Arctic air has arrived! Watching a potential snowstorm for Friday!

Temperatures this morning have fallen into the teens and with winds 10-15 mph the wind chills are in the single digits. This bitter cold air will be with us the rest of the week as highs will be mostly in the 20s and overnight lows around 10 degrees. There will be plenty of sunshine the next three days but an occasional flurry can not be ruled out. On Friday a storm system will be approaching from the west and should spread snow into our area, timing and the intensity of the storm is hard to pinpoint this far out but my best guess now is for the snow to develop late Friday afternoon and continue Friday night with accumulations of around 6 inches. The storm will pull away on Saturday morning and it will be a chilly weekend but not as cold as this current cold spell. Moderating temperatures early next week.

The forecast:
Today – Partly sunny, chance of a flurry, high in the mid 20s.
Tonight – Partly cloudy, low around 10.
Wednesday – Partly sunny with again a chance of a flurry, high in the low 20s.
Thursday – Mostly sunny, high in the mid 20s.
Friday – Snow likely developing in the afternoon, continuing Friday night, high in the upper 20s.
Saturday – Partly sunny, high in the upper 20s.
Sunday – Sunny, high in the low 30s.
Monday, Partly sunny, not as cold, high in the upper 30s.

Marine Forecast: Gale warnings through this evening, west winds gusting to 35 knots, seas up to 7 feet.
Outlook – Small craft advisory conditions for most of the Wednesday through Sunday period.

Have a good day!
