Forecast: Calm into tomorrow, then action begins
Turning colder tomorrow night... followed by snow?
FORECAST IN DETAIL
The forecast consists of rather straightforward January stuff today and through part of tomorrow. Then, the action begins with a strong cold front set to come through late tomorrow, followed by the chance of snow late Friday into Saturday. To be honest, there are still more questions about the potential snowstorm than there are answers. But do read on for the details as we see them now.
Today (Wednesday): A mix of clouds and sun today with highs ending up around the mid-40s -- right around where you'd expect them to be this time of year. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Partly cloudy with lows in the mid-20s to low 30s (suburbs to city). Appreciate these lows slightly above the seasonal norm. Tomorrow night will be much colder. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Thursday): The day starts off feeling like a run-of-the-mill January day with partly sunny skies and temperatures climbing toward and into the 40s. But as a cold front approaches, afternoon highs may spike as high as the low 50s with increasing winds. The front should come through during the late afternoon or early evening, possibly with a rain or snow shower, after which temperatures start to tumble. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Mostly clear early and probably breezy in the wake of the cold front. Lows drop all the way down to the upper teens to mid-20s (suburbs to city) with a chance that some high clouds work their way in overnight or toward morning. Confidence: Medium-High
Friday and Saturday should be quite cold with highs only in the 30s on Friday and 20s on Saturday. Could see some accumulating snow late Friday into Saturday. Whether we do, and how much, depends on the track of a storm coming up from the south. See the Snow Lover's Crystal Ball for more details. Confidence: Low
Any snow should be finished by Saturday night but we stay cold Sunday with highs in the 30s. Confidence: Medium
