Bitter cold to kick off the weekend then next chance of snow

Sunny skies will be deceiving today with wind chill values in the single digits through the afternoon

Sunny skies will continue today but those temperatures will be quite chilly through the day. Highs will only be in the teens with feels-like temperatures below zero and in the single digits. Winds will remain breezy for the morning, but will calm through the day. 

Overnight we will be quiet but another frigid night ahead. Lows will be in the single digits. Clouds will begin to increase for Saturday ahead of a system that will bring us our next chance of snow. Much of Saturday afternoon will be dry with temperatures slightly rebounding to the mid to upper 20s. 

Snow will move in by Saturday night and last through Sunday morning. The brut of the snow will fall by the late morning hours of Sunday. A few inches of snow accumulation possible north of I-80. Warmer air to the south will allow for the chance of a wintry mix. The rest of Sunday is expected to be drier with temperatures in the low 30s.

The next round of snow moves in Sunday night into Monday. This will bring another chance for a few inches of snow possible. Temperatures continue to be in the low 30s for Monday, so the chance for a wintry mix is also possible. 

Temperatures will hover around average for the rest of the week in the low 30s and upper 20s. There are a few more chances for some light snow showers at the end of next week. Above average temperatures expected to arrive by next weekend.
