A weather disturbance passing to our north, and a developing winter storm to our south will combine to bring us some light snow from later this afternoon through Saturday. Snow accumulations here should generally be around an inch or so, mainly tonight, but there could be higher amounts up to 3" in the far eastern viewing area. Lake enhanced snow will bump totals up to 4-8" along the lakeshore. Highs will be in the lower 20s today and Saturday.
Colder air arrives for Sunday with lows in the single digits above zero, but wind chills could drop to near 20 below zero due to brisk winds. Sunday will be partly sunny and very cold with highs in the teens.
Another weak weather disturbance arrives on Monday with a chance for snow showers as high temperatures climb back into the 20s. High pressure arrives for Tuesday and Wednesday with colder weather and some sunshine. Highs will be near 20 both days.
The end of next week looks unsettled with a large storm taking shape, but the timing and track of the storm are very uncertain at this time. Stay tuned.
