Highs today ran 32-35 with cloudy skies & some spits of drizzle, freezing drizzle & a few snow pellets.
Spotty to scattered flurries/snow showers with some light freezing fog & drizzle are possible tonight to early Thursday.
A couple localized light dustings are possible.
After a lull, a few rain/snow/sleet showers are possible in the p.m.
Skies looks mostly cloudy to cloudy with highs 33-38 with a light wind.
A wave of snow showers is possible Friday morning. Some very minor accumulation is possible of 0.5" or less.
It should melt quickly with highs 34-38 with a light wind & cloudy skies with a drying trend Friday p.m.
Some rain/snow to snow showers are possible Saturday. Any accumulation looks local & light. Highs will run 35-40, then may fall 31-35 with wind shift to northwest.
Temperatures should level off & then rise Saturday night from near 29 to 34. Some patchy freezing drizzle may develop for a while Saturday night as warm air advect northward. Southwest wind will develop & increase to 15-25 mph late.
Sunshine & 50s are likely Sunday! However, winds will be strong & gusty from the southwest at 20-40 mph. So, it will feel cooler than that. That wind will feel cold in the morning to midday with wind chills in the 20s & 30s.
50s Monday with strong southwest winds 20-40 mph will be accompany by skies turning cloudy (after lows in the 40s).
Rain with potential of some isolated thunder is likely Monday-Monday night.
Rain should change to freezing rain, then sleet, then snow Tuesday. Some very minor ice/snow accumulation is possible as temperatures tank into the 20s Tuesday afternoon with strong northwest to north winds gusting 35-50 mph.
With lows near 10 by Wednesday morning, wind chills may drop to -10 with strong winds & some flurries.
Wednesday looks partly cloudy & cold with highs only near 15 with lows near 8, but winds will diminish quickly.
Temperatures may moderate quickly to 20s to 30s Thursday & 30s to 40s Friday. Much colder should blast in around the 8th after some rain to snow showers.
As the cold locks in, we are watching the February 9-12 period for wintry precipitation, then cold, cold weather with lows potentially well-below 0.
Some model data suggests impressive, brutal cold (lows as low as -20), but these same models have been trying to blast such cold in since mid-January. I use caution in this prospect, but I can tell you that the trend is cold, cold weather with above normal snowfall into February.
Trend continues to run for a colder, wetter & snowier than normal March.
Given the pattern, I would also expect some big up & down temperature swings, but cold dominating over warmth.
