Suchan Says: Arctic Blast Around the Corner

Friday will start in the mid to upper 20s with partly sunny early morning skies.  There will be a quick warm up into the mid 30s by noon Friday before leveling off and gradually falling by late afternoon as much colder Arctic air begins to surge in.  This will occur despite a decent amount of sunshine too.

Friday evening is a true layer up kind of an evening!  Temperatures will drop quickly and humidity levels will lower sharply as well.  Classic Arctic cold where the air is bone dry and temperatures are frigid.

Saturday morning will start in the single digits but it will feel like it’s -3 to -10 when you factor in a breeze.  By the afternoon, temperatures warm into the mid 20s with mostly cloudy skies.  A few flurries are possible too.

Valentine’s Day is looking up!  Starts cloudy with a touch of freezing drizzle, light sleet or a few snowflakes around daybreak.  Skies turn partly sunny by the afternoon and temperatures warm to 45 -50 into sunset.
