…The wind chill drops to around -20 in spots overnight…
Plenty of clouds prevail, but we should see some breaks. There may be a few light snow showers Skies become partly to mostly cloudy overnight with a few flurries especially near the lakeshores . Even a slight wind with temperatures falling to near zero will result in a bitterly cold wind chill. We’ll see more sun on a very cold Friday, with a chance of a snow flurry.
After a very cold finish to the week, a couple Alberta Clippers will impact the region with some snow showers and maybe some localized lake effect on the back side of these disturbances. The primary storm track will be pushed well south and southeast of our area by the Arctic air masses spilling southward into the Great Lakes. Another serious shot of Arctic air drops into the region for much of next week. Occasional bitterly cold wind chills are expected.
