FRIDAY: We then look to cool down on Friday under partly cloudy skies. Highs Friday only move into the 20s and 30s, which is slightly below or near average for this time of year.

FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAYS SATURDAY & SUNDAY: Temperatures dip a few more degrees on Saturday with 20s and 30s expected in the afternoon along with fairly overcast skies. We are watching a system that could bring some snow late Saturday, especially to our northern counties. Some of that snow is expected to continue southward on a breezy Sunday morning before things quiet down for the rest of the day, with highs Sunday only in the 20s. At this time, some areas could get 6 inches or more of snow up north, with 0-1″ in the south.

MONDAY - TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy conditions look to remain on Monday, with the chance of some light snow showers, mainly in the PM hours. Cold air rolls in behind Sunday’s snow system, with morning temperatures Monday falling into the single digits, with temperatures then staying steady or falling as we head toward dinnertime Monday. The coldest air is expected to arrive Tuesday morning, with low temperatures dropping to near zero in the southern valley, and 10 degrees below zero or colder will be possible north. Some snow showers are possible Tuesday morning before clouds gradually clear.

WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY: Conditions look to quiet down for Wednesday, as we look to be between systems. Temperatures warm up, after starting in the single digits to near zero, we end up in the 20s by the afternoon. Thursday brings back the chance of some light snow, with even warmer temperatures, as morning lows start near 20 degrees and warm to near 30 degrees south.
