We start off the weekend slightly cooler with increasing clouds by late this evening. Then things go downhill from there. On Saturday, temperatures continue to cool along with a mix of rain and snow showers – the wind will be breezy at times. On Sunday, we fall below seasonal with blowing snow and some stiff winds. At this point, whatever accumulates won’t stick around long.
