CLOUDS AND COLD AIR AHEAD: Temps will stay well below normal through the next 7 days, with the coldest air here to start the weekend. We will see cloudy skies for the rest of the workweek and stay mainly dry. The chances for light snow arrive for the end of the weekend and the middle of the next workweek.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: A frontal boundary will set up to our south, giving us a lot of cloud cover and keeping us in the cold air Thursday. Highs will be near 10 south and in the lower single digits north. We lose 10-15 degrees for highs on Friday as a cold high pressure system works in from the west. Morning lows on Friday will be in the -15 to -25 range. We will see partly to mostly cloudy skies to round out the workweek.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: Both days morning lows will be in the -20 to -30 range with dangerous wind chills. Saturday we will have partly cloudy skies and stay mainly dry. Highs Saturday will be in the mid-single digits south and could not get out of the teens below zero north. We should be near 0 for a high on Sunday north and closer to -8 north. There will be a chance of snow showers later in the day on Sunday, otherwise we will see partly to mostly cloudy skies.
MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY: A low and its warm front will move through for Monday and give most areas a good chance of light snow. Warmer air will filter in as highs will be in the mid-teens south and the upper single digits north. We lose a few degrees from that on Tuesday as a weak cool front moves through and we will be mostly cloudy. Another low will spark off a few more snow showers by Wednesday night. Highs will be in the mid-teens south and the upper single digits north.
