WHAT WE’RE TRACKING
Periods of Light Drizzle, Freezing Drizzle and Flurries Tonight
Breezy and Very Cold Tomorrow and Thursday
Temps. in 40s coming next week

TONIGHT   Periods of mist this evening will change to freezing mist and then flurries as temperatures cool down to 20 by daybreak.  The freeze-up will cause icy spots to develop on area roads.  Winds will be brisk from the west at 15-20 mph and wind chill temperatures will drop to 10 late tonight.

WED/THU  One more Arctic blast on the way, with temperatures 20 degrees colder than average for tomorrow and Thursday.  We’ll see afternoon temperatures in the low 20s tomorrow and only upper teens on Thursday.  We will have a chance of lake-effect flurries each day, but any accumulations would be very light.  Overnight temperatures will drop to 0 to 5 above Thursday morning with wind chill readings near zero.

FRIDAY   We’ll start Friday morning with temperatures of 5 to 10.  Partly cloudy skies and a breezy southwest wind during the day will boost temperatures to the mid to upper 20s.

WEEKEND/NEXT WEEK  We’ll see temperatures climb above freezing Saturday and Sunday in the mid 30s.  A few flurries and light snow showers will remain possible this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry.  Warmer weather is definitely on the way for next week.  We’ll see highs approaching 40 on Monday and into the mid 40s for Tues. and Weds.  That sounds really warm, but the average high temperature is low 40s for early next week.  I don’t see any significant storms coming in the next week.
