A beautiful very dry and sun filled Friday across the region. This weekend will bring some changes as usual. Look for a very chilly start to the day tomorrow with frost or near-freezing temps in many areas.
There will likely be a freeze warning for the northern and western suburbs.
That cold front that blasted through the region yesterday really meant business. These temps today were running 10 to 15 degrees below normal.

An upper low currently centered over Ontario will slowly creed eastward into northern New England and Atlantic Canada in the coming days which will keep us in a cool pattern through the weekend and even into early next week.

A warm front will lift across the region overnight bringing rainfall into the predawn hours on Monday.
