A cold front will come through dry this afternoon and will be preceded by a brisk westerly flow of seasonably mild air. After the frontal passage a northwest flow of colder air will prevail.
Much colder and windy on Saturday despite mostly sunny skies, temperatures will have a hard time reaching the freezing mark and with wind gusts to 30 mph will make it feel even colder.
Sunday will again be a mostly sunny day as high pressure builds into our area. There will be less wind and high temperatures will be a couple of degrees higher than Saturday.
The low pressure system that we have been tracking will give our area a good chance of mainly light snow Monday night into the day on Tuesday.
High pressure will dominate our weather Wednesday and Thursday with dry conditions and seasonably cold temperatures.
Another possible storm later next week but present indications are that this storm will be too far to our south and east to give us any additional snowfall.
