AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
LOOKING AHEAD: A pleasantly warm week of weather with dry weather through the workweek. Afternoon highs will be back in the 30s, which will allow for some melting on area roads and sidewalks. Temperatures in the 40s will not be out of the question by late week! By the weekend, we will see an increase in clouds with a wet pattern bringing frequent snow chances for next week.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY: Super duper and awesome! Temperatures soar to highs above freezing for many locations which will help thaw the icy roads and parking lots we've been dealing with for weeks. Highs will range from the upper 20s north to upper 30s south. Mostly sunny skies will prevail and even the nighttime lows will be in the teens and 20s! There will be a slight chance of rain/snow returning to the area by Friday night, especially east of the Red River.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: Increasingly cloudy skies will push back into the area with a good chance of scattered snow or rain showers. Highs will stay mild for this time of year as we will see upper 20s north and upper 30s south.
NEXT WEEK: There will be persistent clouds and snow chances throughout the upcoming workweek. Temperatures appear to stay well above average, but expect frequent dashes of fresh snow.
