Outlook

A strong will cross our region today night, bringing precipitation to most of the area this afternoon or tonight. Dry and cold air more typical of January than November will settle in on Friday that will last through Saturday. After a brief return to near-normal temperatures Sunday and Monday, a strong cold front will push through again Tuesday, bringing another unusually cold weather snap for the middle of next week and a slight chance of a winter weather event possible beginning as sleet and transitioning to snow before the moisture disappears.
