If the longest cold snap since Snowmageddon has kept you cooped up inside the past couple weeks, it’s time to come out of hibernation. While today’s highs in the mid-to-upper 50s are still a few degrees below average, they are a step in the right direction. Even warmer stuff is on tap tomorrow and especially Sunday. Enjoy!
Through Tonight: Still on the cool side, but a pleasant evening nonetheless as temperatures drop into and through the 40s. Later on, overnight lows bottom from the mid-30s in the colder suburbs to the low 40s downtown.
The Weekend: A frontal boundary to the north may give us some clouds on Saturday, but overall it’s a nice day with partly sunny skies and highs near 60 to the low 60s. Following lows in the upper 30s to mid-40s, skies turn mostly sunny for Sunday and temperatures respond, climbing to highs mainly in the mid-to-upper 60s.
Western U.S. storm: The major winter storm impacting large parts of the northwest U.S. is beginning to wane, but blizzard conditions are likely to persist across parts of Montana until tomorrow evening. Weather Underground’s Jeff Masters notes that snowfall from the storm may enter into top-10 territory for places like Glasgow, Mt. So far, the big winner when it comes to snowfall is Janesville, Ca., with 22” of the stuff. Severe weather is expected across parts of the Plains over the weekend as the storm progresses east and we warm up around here.
