Wind and Temperatures:  East to Northeast winds of 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. Temperatures in the 20s expected by Sunday morning.


Potential Impacts

Freezing temperatures after a period of spring like weather may cause agricultural impacts across the region. Additionally, minor snowfall accumulations could cause travel hazards.



Weather Discussion

 The spring preview has ended and colder air has reestablished itself behind throughout the region after the latest cold front passage. A series of upper level disturbances will bring in the chance of a light rain snow mixture to the area on Saturday and may linger into Sunday. Over a majority of the upcoming week, overnight temperatures are expected to dip below freezing.
