Tomorrow night, it will still be cold with temps dipping back into the 20’s and 30’s across the region

Tuesday – Sunday:

Temps will stay in the 30’s and even warm up into the 40’s Wednesday, but another system may be moving in Wednesday night and into Thursday, bringing with it more snow. Areas in the higher elevations could see a big snow event and even in the foothills and low-lying areas, we could see a decent amount of acclimation.

Snow could linger though Friday and temps are looking to stay below average in the 20’s and 30’s.

Have a good week everyone. Stay safe out there and stay warm.
