Temperatures drop into the upper 20s overnight with a few spots near the lakefront only dropping to 30 degrees but with the SW wind at 10-15mph, it will feel like the low 20s.
We can finally stop talking about wind chills on Saturday as the wind will be lighter from the WSW and with partly cloudy skies the temps will warm into the upper 30s and low 40s making it the best day out of the weekend.
A warm front approaches on Saturday night to bring in more clouds and with mild lows near the freezing mark we could see some patchy fog and even a period of freezing drizzle early Sunday morning as moisture streams in. This will be a small window for the potential of icy conditions on the roadways but even a little bit of ice can cause a lot of problems so be careful Sunday morning on the roadways and sidewalks before 9am when temperatures will climb high enough for light rain to fall.
Light rain will increase in coverage as well as intensity as the day wears on. Sunday night and into Monday morning is when the heaviest rain will fall ahead of a cold front that will bring a half an inch to three-quarters of an inch of rainfall. The rain along with temps in the 40s for a third day in a row will cause snow to melt and patchy fog to form. The front will bring in enough cold air to transition the rain to light snow Monday night and into early Tuesday morning with a trace to up to an inch of snow possible, however much of this will be melting on the wet ground. It will be colder and windy as well with highs barely hitting 30 degrees, feeling colder due to intense winds.
Wednesday will be mostly sunny and cold with temps only in the 20s. A few more clouds roll in on Thursday along with temperatures climbing back into the 30s. Mild temps are expected Friday and into the weekend.
