Snow and colder temperatures likely this weekend
Arctic air moves into the region
A quick moving area of low pressure will be forced out of Wyoming and into our region on Saturday morning ahead of an advancing area of high pressure.
Snow showers will likely begin to arrive in our region late tonight from west to east, likely starting as isolated light snow showers before gradually developing into a near-steady light to moderate snow by late tonight and into Saturday morning. During Saturday afternoon, the snow will begin to taper off, but lingering snow showers will remain possible through the early evening hours, and a few flurries will be possible overnight.
Expect around 3 to 6 inches of new snowfall accumulation across the region. Most of this accumulation will likely happen during late tonight and early Saturday afternoon.
Breezy conditions will likely lead to some areas of blowing and drifting snow. The winds will begin to diminish late Saturday and into Saturday Night.
Temperatures across the region will also drop into the single digits tonight. High temperatures Saturday afternoon may struggle to rise much higher than around 6° to 10° during the morning before dropping during the afternoon, and then quickly down to around -7° to -11° on Saturday Night. Cold temperatures will continue into the day on Sunday with highs likely in the single digits again, and then back down to around -8° to -12° on Sunday Night. Wind chill values on Sunday night may reach as low as -32°.
