.DISCUSSION...

ANOTHER DAY OF CLOUDY SKIES AND NORTHERLY WINDS WILL LEAD TO NEAR
STEADY TEMPERATURES THROUGHOUT THE DAY TODAY... WHILE DECREASING
CLOUDS THIS EVENING COULD PRODUCE A BIT OF A CHILL.

LOWS TONIGHT COULD DROP INTO THE TEENS AND LOWER 20S OVER MUCH OF
THE AREA...BUT SHOULD PUSH BACK INTO THE LOWER 30S ON SATURDAY...AS
A LIGHT SOUTHERLY WIND DEVELOPS.

SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL CONTINUE FROM SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY... WITH A
CHANCE FOR SOME VERY LIGHT SNOW SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING AS
A WEAK LOW PRESSURE TROF TRANSITS THE AREA. YET ANOTHER BRUSH WITH
LIGHT SNOW... OR RAIN MIXED WITH SNOW... IS POSSIBLE FROM LATE
MONDAY ONTO TUESDAY.

OVERALL TEMPERATURES FOR THE WEEKEND AND BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK
SHOULD RUN A TAD WARMER THAN LONG TERM SEASONAL NORMALS. NORMALS FOR
THIS TIME OF YEAR HAVE HIGHS IN THE UPPER 20S AND LOWS NEARER THE
10 DEGREE MARK.

LATER NEXT WEEK... THE AREA IS LIKELY TO SEE TEMPERATURES DROP
NEARER TO ...OR EVEN BELOW THESE LONG TERM NORMALS.
