Cold Weather Continues, No Big Storms In Sight 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


Clouds will be on the increase this afternoon as a weak disturbance approaches from the Great Lakes region. Temperatures will remain very cold today with highs in the teens to low 20s this afternoon. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy tonight as the disturbance moves through. We may see a few snow showers in spots as well. Plan on another very cold night tonight but with more clouds in place, low temperatures should be tad warmer than what we’re experiencing this morning. Expect low temperatures to range from -14° north to +6° closer to the coast.


Clouds will linger into Wednesday morning then give way to sunshine as strong high pressure moves back in. Temperatures on Wednesday will be very cold again with highs in the teens to around 20°. Strong high pressure will build in on Thursday bringing us lots of sunshine. Temperatures will be a bit warmer on Thursday with afternoon highs in the 20s. High pressure will slide to our east for the end of the week which will switch our winds around to a milder southerly wind. The milder wind will push temperatures into the 30s in most locales for Friday and Saturday which is where temperatures should be for this time of year. Colder weather is forecast to return early next week. No big storms in sight so plan on a quiet stretch of weather through early next week.


Rest of Today: increasing clouds. Very cold with highs between 14°-24°. West wind 5-10 MPH.


Tonight: partly to mostly cloudy. A few snow showers possible. Frigid with lows between -14° to +6°. Light north wind.


Wednesday: lingering clouds during the morning then brightening skies during the afternoon. Highs between 12°-22°. North wind around 10 MPH.


Thursday: lots of sunshine. Not as cold with highs in the 20s.


Friday: mix of sun and clouds. Scattered snow showers at night. Highs in the upper 20s to mid-30s.


Saturday: morning snow showers then clearing skies. Milder with highs in the 30s to near 40°.
