A cold front will cross the area today. This, coupled with a weak disturbance developing along the front, will provide the entire area with a chance of snow showers today. Some light accumulations are possible. Temperatures will likely hold steady in the low 30s and possibly fall a degree or two this afternoon.
Colder air will spread across the area tonight. Snow showers will briefly taper off during the evening. Then, late tonight, snow showers will begin to redevelop across the area as winds become better aligned out of the northwest. Lows tonight will dip into the teens.
On Saturday, snow showers will increase as conditions become much more favorable for lake effect snow. A vigorous disturbance will approach Saturday afternoon causing snow showers across the entire area and enhancing the lake snows across the snow belt. High temperatures on Saturday will rise to the mid 20s.
The disturbance will move east of the area Saturday night. Winds will shift around a bit during the evening, and then settle back to a northwesterly flow late. Snow showers will continue across the entire area into Saturday night, tapering off late. Lake snows will continue throughout the night with the threat of heavy snow across the snow belt. It will be cold with lows in the low to mid teens.
Lake effect snow showers will continue into Sunday morning, then gradually taper off as high pressure finally builds across the region. Highs on Sunday will reach the mid 20s.
