Good afternoon! Cold, inland sun is the rule, but now that winds are northwesterly some snow showers are set to come ashore. Don't plan on major accumulations outside of a dusting. Evening commute highs are near 20 degrees before plummeting to near zero tonight. Our cold Friday morning transitions to a still cold afternoon even though we break 20 degrees. The problem is stiffening, southerly winds to 25 mph will take away any of the sensible gains in the "how it feels" department.
Saturday brings middle 30s and a few snow showers. Sunday is similar only upper 30s should be the rule. This not insignificant warm-up is a stepping stone enroute to the 40s next week. Monday we're touting near 40 degrees, Tuesday middle 40s. The setup, alongside strong, southerly winds, Wednesday is for our first 50 degree air since the day after Christmas. How great is that?!?
