A cold front will bring snow showers and a heavier squall to the area early tonight. Be careful as roads will become slick as snow will initially melt and then the water can refreeze into ice. These should taper to scattered snow showers and flurries later tonight. Total accumulation will be a coating to an inch or so near and east of I-80 but there will be 1 to as much as 3 inches to the west with the highest amounts on the ridges. It will be blustery and cold tonight with lows in the 20s.
There still may be flurries and a snow shower in spots early Friday, then the rest of the day will be cloudy to partly sunny, brisk and quite chilly with highs in the 20s to the lower 30s. Friday night will be cold with some clouds and lows in the teens. A storm system will gather strength and pass to our south this weekend. Any snowfall from the system looks like it will stay well to our south of our area, but it will help to continue to pull cold air into our region. As of now it looks like both Saturday and Sunday will feature more clouds than sunshine. We’ll still have more clouds than sunshine on Monday. Highs in the lower 30s. A bubble of high press will then settle into our region and give us nicer weather for the middle of next week. Tuesday will be partly to mostly sunny but chilly with highs in the lower to middle 30s. We’ll have a sunny to partly cloudy sky on Wednesday with highs in the 30s to near 40. Another storm system will bring an increase in cloudiness on Thursday. Some rain or a wintry mix could develop later in the day. This storm system will bring rain or a wintry mix Friday into the following weekend.
