Arctic air began filtering into the region last night behind a strong cold front. Wind chills this morning will be in below zero territory and afternoon temperatures will only reach the teens. Apart from the cold, it will be a relatively calm day. We will get some early sun, but the clouds will rise and thicken throughout the late afternoon.

Sporadic light snowfall is possible overnight and into tomorrow morning. Any spots that see snow might pick up some quick dust, but no noticeable accumulations are expected. Although most of Sunday will be dry, there will still be a chance of light snow overnight and into Monday morning. It will be another troublesome snowfall, and not everyone will see it, but it will potentially be enough to make some roads slippery for the Monday morning drive.

Keep an eye on the forecast towards the middle of next week. A powerful storm system appears to be emerging from the plains and heading east of the Great Lakes. We will become milder with the potential for rain-mix to develop on Wednesday. Then a change in snow accumulation would occur overnight. However, the exact track of this storm system is uncertain at this time, and we are on the northern outskirts. Any southerly shift in track could make the forecast much calmer. Keep checking for updates over the next few days…
