A weak cold front will pass the city in the early morning hours Thursday with colder air slipping in behind the front for Thursday afternoon .  A few flurries may be possible early in the day as southwest winds freshen up from the northwest.  Clouds will break for sunshine during the afternoon hours.  This is the first front that will swing across the state over the next 5 days.

The same cold front that passes late tonight will return as a warm front late Friday (front#2).  Milder air will spread east in advance of a big push of cold air bringing area temperatures up to near the 40° mark Friday and even warmer Saturday.  (Barring an inversion and cloud cover Saturday) we could see high temperatures Saturday push near 50°. This burst of mild air will be long gone Sunday and a stronger cold front moves through Sunday morning. (front #3)

COLD END TO WEEKEND

The cold front Sunday morning will bring sharply colder air in to finish off the weekend as well as a chance for some snow showers but this front is not the main event.  Forecast high temperatures expected to dip back into the 20’s and along with brisk winds – bundle up!  Wind chills will dive into the single digits by late afternoon.

FRONT #4  AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT
