PM Update: Chilly, tranquil weather weekend ahead

Lots of cold air at high altitudes fusing with sunshine (invisible to us) generated a blanket of cloud cover today. Considerable cloud cover lingers into the weekend along with below average temperatures. At least it will be dry. The calm before next week’s possible storm ?

Through Tonight: Cloudy skies this evening with a possible sprinkle or flurry. Later at night, it remains mostly cloudy but dry, with lows 31-36 (suburbs to city). Winds are from the north at 5-10 mph.

The weekend: Both days are partly to mostly cloudy and cooler than average, but Sunday is the chillier of the two. Highs Saturday are in the mid-40s but only manage the low 40s Sunday. Overnight lows Saturday night are cold, ranging from 25-30 (suburbs-city). There’s a noticeable breeze from the northwest both days, around 10-15 mph.
