Monday: Another cold weather system will bring with it more snow. Highs will reach the low 40s during the morning but fall through the day, so it looks like some rain showers for the morning commute, then a transition to snow showers.

The timing now puts the chance for snow in the mid- to late afternoon through the evening hours. A light accumulation looks possible now. Temperatures will fall quickly at night into the 20s.

Tuesday: It will be a cold morning around 20 with some spots in the teens. Scattered clouds and flurries will be possible. We will have to watch for slick spots or ice on the roadways, could make for a messy morning commute.

It will be a breezy and cold day, only reaching the upper 20s for the afternoon. The record for the coldest high temperature that day is 30, so we could break that record.

Wednesday: It will be a quieter day with sunshine, but will still stay cold with temperatures in the lower 30s. This could also break records for the coldest high temperature on this date (13 degrees was the record low set in 1986).

Thursday: It will be partly cloudy with slightly warmer temperatures. Highs will be in the low 40s.
