DISCUSSION: A surge of arctic air will overspread the region later
today through Saturday creating gusty easterly winds along with scattered
snow showers. Dangerously low wind chills are also possible
mainly near the Divide. A repeat performance is anticipated on
Monday night into Tuesday, except this weather system will be
accompanied by several inches of low density snowfall.
