Much colder temperatures in store for the weekend

A wave of low pressure riding along a nearby cold front will slide by to our south overnight bringing us a rain/snow mix for a while before quickly changing over to all snow. 

Around a coating to two inches of snow will be possible by the end of the event. 

Watch for slick spots to develop on area roadways. 

The steady snow will come to an end early on Saturday as the disturbance quickly pulls away.  

Look for mostly cloudy skies to dominate for the rest of the day on Saturday along with a few flurries lingering around at times.  

Brisk and chilly conditions will also be featured on Saturday as highs hold in the middle 30s with wind chills in the 20s.
