Arctic cold starts the weekend

Good Friday, everyone. Our Valentine’s Day is one of the coldest days of the entire winter as arctic air has taken control of the weather. This won’t carry us through the entire weekend, but it’s another reminder that we are indeed still in winter.

Temps this morning will be in the teens with wind chills in the single digits. A few flurries or light snow showers may even show up to start the day:

Afternoon skies become partly sunny with highs in the upper 20s and low 30s. That sets the stage for another frigid night with temps back into the teens.

Saturday starts absolutely frigid, but ends on a nice note with temps in the mid 40s to low 50s.

Sunday looks even milder with temps reaching the 50s across the entire area.

Our next system moves our way by Tuesday and will have a surge of milder air ahead of it. 60s are possible:

A cold front then moves in by Tuesday night and will bring widespread showers and a few storms. Winds look very gusty as cold air crashes in behind it.

Can this setup produce some winter weather around here? It’s one that actually bears watching as the front could check up and allow for winter weather makers to roll along it. That’s something the European is hinting at, but has the action to our south and southeast:

That’s something to follow in the coming days.

Have a great Valentine’s Day and take care.
