Good Friday to one and all. Rain is on the increase across our region, and this will help unlock another shot of cold for Saturday. That cold becomes bitter cold by late Sunday and early next week as an arctic front moves in.
Temps Friday will still be fairly mild, with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s before the showers move in. Those showers really increase from southwest to northeast through the middle of the afternoon. A few locally heavy downpours will be possible in the central part of the state:
Much colder air sweeps in during the evening with temps dropping from west to east. It gets colder enough for some snowflakes to fly late Friday night and Saturday. This won’t be much more than a few snow showers and flurries, but it’s a big switch from the past few days.
Arctic air surges in late Sunday as a strong cold front moves in. This will probably have a band of gusty snow with it:
The lowest temps in relation to normal are located right on top of our region:
Lows by Monday morning may make a run at zero. The Canadian model shows it even colder than that:
Enjoy your Friday and take care.
