 .DISCUSSION...
 A cold front will reinforce the chilly air in place today. Snow 
 flurries or showers are possible in and near the northern mountains 
 today and tonight, but there is not much if any accumulation 
 expected. Winds will be a bit gusty across the lowlands, but 
 stronger gusts will occur in the mountains, especially across the 
 higher ridges.
 
 Lows will be in the teens across much of the area tonight, except 
 lower 10s in the northern mountains, where wind chills will drop to 
 the single digits either side of zero overnight tonight.
 
 High pressure will cross Saturday, with tranquil weather including 
 lots of sunshine by afternoon. Unsettled weather and southerly flow 
 is then anticipated for Sunday into the beginning of the upcoming 
 work week, when warmer air and precipitation overrun the region.
