WEATHER BLOG: Still Cold
There are clouds over our area in association with yet another clipper system that is moving over the Great Lakes.
Radar shows snow showers moving across parts of West Virginia. Moisture is rather limited but an upper trough to our west will become more amplified with time. This will be enough to squeeze out the available moisture and produce more snow showers, which will move into our area later Thursday morning and exit by evening. One or two of these snow showers could lightly dust paved surfaces.
It will be a cold night, but there will be enough clouds and mixing to prevent temperatures from crashing much below 10 degrees. We will be between systems Friday but still cold despite some sunshine.
Our weekend system will move into the Great Lakes Friday night. Increasing southwest winds ahead of it and low-level warm air advection should allow temperatures to slowly rise Friday night. Temperatures will be in the teens Friday evening then reach the lower 20s by dawn on Saturday. At this point, all of the models are in agreement that snow will hold off until sometime in the morning Saturday.
