Here is the latest outlook.

Weak disurbance combined with band/area of lake effect snow showers will bring some less than 1" additional accumulation in places tonight to early Friday. 

A few flurries are then possible, followed by some clearing & 28-32 Friday afternoon. Wind chills will be in the teens to 20.

Clipper is speeding up.  It looks to get in here with some snow by midnight Friday night. 

Before we cloud over, a few places may tank to single digits & teens Friday evening with calm winds.  Otherwise, lows will run near 20 to the 20s.

Even areas that tank temperature-wise will rise overnight as the cloud deck from the clipper overspreads the area.

Snow should pass through Saturday morning, then taper by afternoon.

1" or less is possible, though it does appear there may be a band of 1-2" (even a few isolated 2-3" amounts) with the system.  It is unclear whether that band will make it into our area.

The trend recently has been for it to set up just south & southwest of our area.  This could change.

We will monitor closely.

Highs Saturday will run 29-33 with wind chills in the 20-25 range with west breeze 5-12 mph.

Snow/ice is possible Sunday midday-afternoon, followed by a change-over to rain as temperatures warm by evening.  Rain should end as snow showers Sunday night to Monday morning.

Brief, very minor snow & ice accumulations are possible Sunday, especially in the north.  It appears up to a quick 1" of snow/sleet may occur far northern & northeastern areas right now with lesser to then trace amounts with southward extent.

We will monitor for tweaks.

Winds look brisk at 15-25 mph from the southwest Sunday, followed by northwest winds gusting +30 mph late Sunday night-Monday.

A few flurries & snow showers may linger through Monday with lots of clouds with highs 29-34 after highs of 34-40 Sunday.

Brief ice to rain to some snow is possible Wednesday with highs 37-44, followed by much colder weather.

Colder than normal temperatures dominate for the rest of February overall.  Precipitation & snowfall looks above normal.

Colder than normal weather also tends to dominate right through March.

Above normal precipitation & snowfall is trending for March.

April is trending normal temperature-wise, but the cold anomalies are not far away.  May end up as a colder than normal start, then warmer than normal end for it to even out.

May is trending cooler than normal overall.

March-April-May are overall trending wetter than normal.

Overall, summer is trending hotter than normal.

After a wetter June, drier than normal weather in July & August may pull us to an overall drier than normal summer.
