Forecast: Cold Comes With Chance of Light Snow
Light snow or flurries late Saturday; Strong winds Sunday
Besides a chance of light snow or flurries late Saturday, the weather today through Monday should be mostly dry and MOSTLY COLD. Bundle up, especially on what will be a wind-chilled Sunday, or perhaps just stay inside to decorate for the holiday? Tuesday could bring the next chance of precipitation.
Partly to mostly sunny. Upper 30s to around 40. Plain cold! That about sums it up. Despite our sunshine today, it will be much colder behind the cold front that passed through with showers last night. Morning winds around 10-15 mph will slow during the day, so afternoon highs in the upper 30s to near 40 will feel only slightly colder than that.
Overnight it looks mostly clear. That should allow temperatures to really drop. Expect mid 20s downtown, and near 20 with some upper teens possible in the suburbs.

Sunny a.m. to cloudy p.m. Upper 30s to near 40. Light snow late? Tomorrow starts much the same as today with some morning sun and highs on their way to the upper 30s to near 40. But foreboding clouds build in the afternoon and could yield flurries (60% chance) or light snow (50% chance) Saturday evening and overnight. Lows dip to the upper 20s to near 30.
Any accumulation? If we happen to get a burst of heavier snow, then a dusting to maybe half-inch is not out of the question. Otherwise, probably not. Stay tuned for further updates.
Becoming mostly sunny. Very windy. Mid-to-upper 30s. Any lingering clouds and snowflakes in the morning should quickly give way to sunny skies. But you'll be too busy shielding yourself from the fierce wind -- 20-30 mph, maybe with some higher gusts -- to enjoy the sun. Highs will likely only reach the mid-to-upper 30s. And with the wind, it probably won't feel warmer than the 20s to near 30 all day.
Sunday night, gradually diminishing winds with lows in the mid 20s downtown, upper teens to low 20s in the suburbs.
A LOOK AHEAD
Monday should be mostly sunny but still cold. Highs in the upper 30s to low 40s. At least the wind will be mostly calm! Confidence: Medium-High
Tuesday could see partly to mostly cloudy skies and precipitation that may start out in some places as a bit of snow, but probably changing to rain rather quickly as highs reach the 40s. At least that's how it looks as of now. Confidence: Low-Medium
