Thursday & Friday

An arctic cold front is set to up roll through Thursday.

This means morning highs range from 18-28 and fall into the low teens to low 20 by evening.

The cold front will set off scattered snow showers.

COLD air is here Friday morning with readings of -12 to 14 degrees. But the wind will make it feel even colder!

Lake effect snow will be around as well. Being so cold, what snow falls will be very small.

This means low accumulations but reduced visibilities.

Saturday and Sunday are looking much brighter.

Saturday has a very cold start but warms up into the low 10s to low 20s.

Skies are a mix of sun and clouds.

Sunday is warmer with readings in the mid-20s to low 30s.
