Early Weekend Update:  We will start off your weekend with partly sunny skies with a Saturday afternoon high of 37 degrees.  By Sunday morning, skies will be cloudy with rain and a wintry mix developing for areas west of I-75.  The bulk of the cold rain will move in from late morning to early afternoon, with a transition to all snow by Sunday evening.  Sunday morning low temperatures will start off around 29 degrees, so if any precipitation starts early enough Sunday, there could be a little freezing rain.  However, we are expecting most of the rain to not begin until midday Sunday, when temperatures are above freezing.  Sunday high temperatures will be around 36 degrees by mid-afternoon, with arctic air moving in Sunday night.  Temperatures will quickly drop by Monday morning to the lower single digits, with wind chills around -20 degrees.  Monday will be a FRIGID day, with decreasing clouds and a high of only 5 degrees!  Our coldest night will be Monday night into Tuesday morning, with sub-freezing temperatures likely ranging from -5 to -10 degrees.  Tuesday will be mostly sunny with a high of only 8 degrees.  Temperatures gradually increase toward the end of the week, with mid to upper 30s for highs by Thursday and Friday.  Another weather distubance will bring the chance for a wintry mix by next Thursday. 
___________________________________________________________________________________________
After Thursday’s snowfall, where snowfall accumulations averaged from a dusting to 2 inches, we’ll continue to see cold weather into the weekend. Another round of wintry precipitation returns for Sunday, with arctic air moving in next week.

TONIGHT: With clear skies and light southerly winds, overnight low temperatures will fall to around 14 degrees.

SATURDAY: We will start off your weekend with mostly sunny skies and a high of 37 degrees.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Clouds will increase Saturday night, with overnight low temperatures around 29 degrees.

SUNDAY: Precipitation looks to begin as a cold rain around midday Sunday, even though a little wintry mix is possible for areas west of I-75 Sunday morning. An arctic cold front will transition the rain to snow by Sunday afternoon and evening, from west to east. Sunday high temperatures will be around 36 degrees by early afternoon, with temperatures quickly falling into the lower single digits by early Monday morning.

SUNDAY NIGHT: A quick accumulation of 1” to 3” of snow is likely late Sunday into Sunday night, with breezy winds giving us wind chills down to -20 degrees by Monday morning. These cold temperatures will cause concern for frostbite on exposed skin, for people outside for prolong periods of time. Overnight low temperatures will be around 3 degrees around daybreak Monday.

MONDAY: Snow showers will have diminished early Monday with a few flurries possible, and decreasing clouds through the day. With arctic air continuing to move in, high temperatures will only reach 5 degrees Monday afternoon! This could set a new record cold high temperature for January 6th.

MONDAY NIGHT/TUESDAY: Our coldest night in the week ahead, looks to be Monday night into Tuesday morning, with sub-zero low temperatures around -6 degrees. Tuesday will feature mostly sunny skies through the day, with only a high of 8 degrees.

WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY: Wednesday will start off with morning low temperatures around 5 degrees, with an afternoon high of 29 degrees on Wednesday. A weaker weather disturbance will move into the region on Thursday, bringing another chance for a rain-snow mix, with a high of 36 degrees.
