FORECAST DISCUSSION:

The snow is mainly east of the state following a surface low and cold front. A large mid-level system is crossing the Great Lakes. It is cold enough for more isolated snow showers or flurries. Today’s high may be the coldest ever for this date. The record is 30 set in 1920. The day time high, the one after daybreak, will only be in the mid-20s and that will come with a stiff wind that will make it feel like it is the teens all day.

Tonight’s low will be in the low to mid-teens as arctic high pressure builds into the region. The record is 14 set more than a century ago in 1911. A few lows north may drop into single digits.

High pressure will be moving out tomorrow. Skies will be partly sunny. Highs will be near freezing. Tomorrow night there will be a chance of snow showers north with a weakening front dropping into the region.

Stay warm today!
