A good Valentine's Day to all. I'd like to say we have a sweetheart of a forecast, but I'd be lying. Instead, we're looking at some more snow today, tonight and Saturday. Just when you thought it was safe to go outside ...
Today's National Weather Service forecast calls for a chance of snow before noon (Update: Snow is falling in the Q-C) with cloudy skies gradually becoming mostly sunny. The high for the day will be near 21 degrees with wind chill values as low as -5 degrees. Northwest winds will gust as high as 20 mph.
Tonight will be partly cloudy with a low around 0 and wind chill values as low as -10 degrees.
Saturday snow is likely after noon with new snow accumulation around one inch possible. The high for the day will be near 23 degrees and the low will be around 12 degrees.
Sunday will be partly sunny with a high near 26 and a low around 22. Sunday night brings a chance of freezing rain and sleet.
On the plus side, for Presidents Day temps are expected to climb into the mid- to upper 30s.
Enjoy your weekend.
