Drastic Changes for the Weekend

Warm for Friday but temperatures could drop 20 degrees or more by Sunday!

Fall is upon us and like a traditional fall like pattern, big changes are underway for our weekend. A strong cold front is moving through the Great Lakes region and will start to impact our weather on Saturday.

The core of this storm system brought a foot of snow to parts of northern Minnesota!

Now we will only see the effects of the trailing cold front on Saturday.

The chilly air behind this system won't be filtering in until Sunday.

Here's a look at the front on Thursday with the snow falling in the upper parts of the Great Lakes region.

The cooler air won't really impact us until Sunday though, but you'll notice a big difference between Saturday's weather, and Sunday's.

Take a look at the upper level temperature patterns.

It doesn't take a Meteorologist to pick out where the cool is and notice the change from Saturday to Sunday.

On the left is the Saturday morning model forecast of upper level temperatures, on the right is Sunday morning. Ouch! Break out those jackets and sweatshirts.

There's even a chance for parts of the highest elevations in the mountains of far western West Virginia could see some snow flakes mixing in with that rain! How about that for the first week of October. It's definitely going to be a close one for some areas with temperatures dropping into the 30s for Sunday night.

The good news, the cold blast won't last long, this time that is.
