An arctic cold front will push through the region this afternoon, bringing with it what will likely be the most winter-like week of the season. The beginning of the week will be marked by light snow. By mid week, temperatures will fall to their lowest levels of the season. Then to top it off, there may be the potential for a moderate snow event to start the weekend.

Sunday
Sunny and clear.
Temperatures in the upper 30's throughout the morning, steadily falling into the lower 20's this evening. Gusty winds are possible, especially over the higher terrain.

Monday
Mostly cloudy.
A weak low pressure system will pass through the region
This will bring a chance for light snow.
1 to 2 inches of snow is possible Monday afternoon and evening.
High in the upper 20's, morning low in the mid teens.
There is a 50% chance of snow.

Tuesday
Snow showers may linger through Tuesday morning.
We could see up to an additional inch.
Morning lows in the mid teens,
Afternoon highs in the lower 20's.
30% chance of snow.

Wednesday and Thursday
It will be partly cloudy for the most part.
High temperatures will be in the upper teens.
Low temperatures will be in the single digits.

Regarding this week's temperatures,
the general rule of thumb is that the wind-chill temperature will feel about 10 degrees colder than the actual temperature. So, although highs will be in the 20's Monday and Tuesday, it will feel like the mid teens. This will be the case for most of the week.
