***The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for the counties of Highland, Pendleton, and Western Grant until 10:00a.m. Feel like temperatures will slip to -5 to -10 degrees. Dress warm.***
We wrap up the week with warmer temperatures near 42 degrees this afternoon. Skies remain mainly sunny with high level cirrus clouds overhead ahead of our next storm system.
Clouds increase tonight. Maybe a flurry by dawn Saturday. Low temperatures near 30.
We're tracking another complex system for the start of the weekend. Snow showers are likely Saturday morning. Accumulations look to be minor at this time. Around 1" to 1.5" of snow may accumulate on grassy surfaces before sleet packs that down. Snow fans should not get excited about this, however, it may add to the holiday cheer for a few hours. Any snow showers won't last long as Saturday afternoon brings a mix of light snow and sleet and freezing rain. Some locations warm enough for a plain, cold rain. Overall, a sloppy day. We'll keep watching to see how this impacts the Valley. We have issued an "Inconvenient Weather Day".
After some lingering flurries and upslope snow showers Sunday, the day will feature slow clearing. We'll be breezy and chilly.
The weather pattern appears quite most of next week.
