Wintery Weather Stretching from the West Coast to the Great Lakes

Lake Effect Snow Warnings are in effect for the Great Lakes with 2 to 3 feet storm total snow possible. Arctic Air extends across much of the U.S. with breezy winds and temperatures 15-35 degrees below normal in the Northern Plains. Out west, heavy mountain snow and some low elevation snow and freezing rain forecast as a warmer weather system interacts with the Arctic airmass. Read More >

Cloudy and cold conditions can be expected for the rest of the day behind an arctic cold front. Some very light precipitation is falling across the area but surface temperatures are generally above freezing. A few flakes of snow may occur but no accumulations or impacts to area roads are expected.
It will be cold Thursday night/Friday morning. Low temperatures Friday morning will range from the upper teens northwest to mid 20s south by daybreak. Though north winds will diminish to 10 mph or less, wind chill readings will be mostly in the teens to start your Friday off.
With the expected arctic air intrusion Wednesday night through Friday, remember to keep the 4 P's in mind for protection against the frigid temperatures expected. Protect pipes, faucets, and sensitive plants, as well as preparing outdoor pets and people without ample heating for the impending chilly weather ahead. Also, shut off sprinklers as they can cause icy patches on roads and sidewalks resulting in injuries! Check your heater to ensure its functioning properly before the cold weather arrives.
Dry and cool conditions are expected for Friday. An area of low pressure will approach the region on Saturday, bringing a chance for some light rain/drizzle Saturday and Saturday night, followed by a low risk for some isolated thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon.
