SATURDAY: We start the weekend on a chilly note with morning lows in the single digits on Saturday under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures only warm a few degrees into the afternoon hours with clouds increasing. A quick-moving snow system looks to move through in the evening hours, which could drop a few inches of snow in some spots.

SUNDAY - MONDAY: Sunday will be cold again with morning lows in the teens below zero and only warming to near 10 degrees in the southern valley. The chance of snow returns Sunday evening with a fast-moving clipper system, with snowfall expected into early Monday morning. A few inches of new snow look possible at this point. Winds look to pick up on Sunday, which could cause some blowing and drifting of the snow on the ground or freshly-fallen snow. Temperatures Monday morning look to start in the single digits above zero, with temperatures staying steady or falling through the day. After morning snow chances, skies turn partly cloudy.

FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY - TUESDAY: Morning temperatures Tuesday start near 25 below zero in the southern valley, with wind chills perhaps dropping as low as 50 below zero. Because of that dangerous cold and those dangerous wind chills, we have raised a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY for Tuesday. Skies remain partly cloudy on Tuesday, with high temperatures in the afternoon only making it to near 10 below zero in the south.

WEDNESDAY - FRIDAY: Temperatures are again the story as we go into Wednesday, with morning lows starting near 20 degrees below zero. We do look to warm into the single digits and teens above zero in the afternoon hours under a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures then continue rising through the night into Thursday, along with the chance of some light snow on Thursday. Temperatures Thursday afternoon look to warm into the teens and 20s. Friday looks mainly quiet at this point, with morning lows in the single digits, warming into the teens to near 20 under partly cloudy skies.
