Good morning!

Scattered snow showers continue again on Wednesday and through Thursday morning as another weak disturbance moves off the Great Lakes. Snow will be on-and-off, and mainly light. However, there is the potential for some quick, heavier bursts of snow that can reduce visibility on the roads. Throughout Thursday, snow will taper off - leaving skies partially, if not mostly, clear by the evening. Around 1-4" widespread is expected to fall through tomorrow, with higher amounts possible in foothills and mountains.

Temperatures today will reach the low 30s for likely the last time this week. Winds remain light this morning, before becoming northerly at 5-15 mph this afternoon, then up to 20 mph overnight into Thursday. Thursday kicks off a cooling trend with highs near 20 through Friday. On Friday, however, an Arctic cold front brings bitterly cold temperatures that persist through the weekend.

Saturday, highs will struggle to reach the double digits, with some spots stuck near or below zero all day. Speaking of below zero, northwest winds gusting to 30+ mph will create wind chills of -15 to -30 degrees. Sunday is not all that warmer, but it will be calmer with a little more sunshine.


Have a great day!
