The arctic air mass will retreat over the weekend.

An arctic air mass dominated our weather today with the mercury only reaching the single digits to the middle teens despite a good deal of sunshine. The sky will remain clear tonight, and with a fresh snowcover and light winds, the mercury will drop to near in some of the colder rural valleys tonight. The mercury may start to rise later tonight as the arctic air mass slides to the east. On the back side of this air mass, temperatures will rebound quite nicely for the weekend. Saturday will feature a sunny to partly cloudy sky with afternoon temperatures rebounding well into the 20s to near 30. Temperatures will not drop much Saturday night and then clouds will thicken up on Sunday ahead of the next front. This front will bring a mix of rain and snow later Sunday that will change to all snow showers and perhaps a heavier squall Sunday night. The coldest air mass in years will start to slide into the region Monday. While early morning temperatures may be in the 20s, the mercury will likely drop into the single digits before evening and then below zero Monday night. Temperatures will struggle to reach above zero in places Tuesday despite some sunshine. The bitterness will ease later next week.
