For the next few days we’re locked into a wintry pattern, with colder than normal temperatures and possible bouts of snow showers and flurries. This snow will be mainly of the conversational variety, but a heavier band here or there could lay down a quick dusting and cause a few slick spots.

Through Tonight: No snow tonight but * very * cold. Under clear skies, lows drop from the low-to-mid teens in outlying suburbs to the upper teens downtown. Winds from the west at 10-15 mph, sometimes gusting over 20 mph produce wind chills in the single digits.

Saturday and Saturday night: Variably cloudy and cold. Occasional snow flurries/showers may develop during the afternoon (40-50 percent chance). Highs range from 30-35. Snow flurries or snow showers may (40 percent chance) linger into the early evening before a possible break. Then another batch of flurries could develop towards dawn (40 percent chance). Lows range from 23-28 (suburbs-city). Winds are generally light from the south.

Sunday: There a slight chance of morning snow showers/flurries (30 percent chance), before it becomes mostly sunny and not quite as cold, with highs near 40.
