Another cold front moved through the area overnight accompanied by some snow flurries in the area. This front will be followed by a reenforcing surge of cold Arctic air. Temperatures have fallen into the teens and highs will not do any better than the upper 20s today despite having a mostly sunny day.
After a very cold night tonight Friday will be a couple of degrees milder with temperatures reaching the freezing mark.
Still tracking the storm for the weekend, as it appears now snow will begin around noon on Saturday and becoming steady and heavier Saturday night, the precipitation may change to rain or freezing rain before ending on Sunday. At the present time it appears most of the area will have 4-6 inches of snow, still time to fine tune the details as we get closer to the event.
Clearing weather by Sunday afternoon.
