A blustery and chilly flow will continue across the region today with a strong pressure gradient in place and a few lake enhanced flurries and snow showers. A clipper system will then pass south of the region late Friday into Saturday with little impact on the region before high pressure builds in for the remainder of the weekend with unseasonably cold temperatures continuing. A much larger storm system then looks to approach by Tuesday with a mix of rain and snow.
