Another Bitter Night

Tonight will mark the 14th time this month we have had sub-zero temperatures.  It's not just barely dropping below either.  -17° is the coldest temperature we've reached so far this winter, once last month and again back on the 5th.  Tonight, we'll come close to matching that mark at -15°.  Thankfully, wind won't be much of an issue.

A sun filled Friday is planned.  The clear air carries on into Friday night, where another trip sub-zero is planned before readings start to show some signs of a rebound this weekend.

While a couple of snowflakes are possible Early Sunday morning, the setup becomes more interesting by Tuesday of next week.  The weather pattern looks to become a little more active, trying to pull a sizable storm system up from the southwest.  We'll need a close track on this timeframe.

Tonight: Mostly clear.  Lows near -15°.  Wind: Lt & Vrb.

Friday: Mostly sunny.  Highs near 10°.  Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Partly cloudy.  Highs in the middle teens. 

Sunday: Mostly cloudy.  Slight chance for snow early.  Highs in the middle 20s.

Monday: Partly cloudy.  Highs in the middle 20s.  Chance for snow late.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy.  Chance of mainly snow.  Highs near 30°.  Turning windy.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy.  Breezy.  Steady temps near 10°.
