After a relatively quiet Thursday, conditions will get a bit tougher heading into Presidents' Day weekend. Not that it isn't already cold enough, but an arctic cold front will settle southward through the state Friday. Behind the front, the coldest air of the season will settle into the area for Friday night, Saturday, Saturday night, and Sunday.
As the front moves into the state, our wind speeds will pick up quite a bit. Speeds will likely be in the 15 to 20 mph range for the afternoon. The front will also support some snow showers. Accumulations will be minor - generally an inch or less. It is, however, the combination of snow, wind, and high temperatures at around 20, that could combine to produce glazed roads, or "black-ice" conditions.
Snow showers will be possible on Saturday as high temperatures struggle to hit 10-degrees, so slippery roads will still be possible. Sunday will be brighter and warmer, with some light snow moving in again for Sunday night and Presidents' Day. - JR
