Forecast Discussion:
The passage of an arctic cold front today will bring a period of snow showers and squalls, followed by falling temperatures this
afternoon. Temperatures will continue to plummet tonight, with many locations dropping below zero. A couple of clipper systems will
move through the region over the weekend, with a second of these a rather impressive-looking surface low that will be gathering over the Great
Lakes on Saturday night. This system could bring some snow squalls on Sunday, but it might not have the necessary moisture available
to be a substantial precipitation event. This system will be associated with the first of a series of upper-level troughs that will
be digging into the eastern United States early next week, likely leading to a period of well below-average temperatures.
