FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 2018
Outside of a few more high level clouds spreading west to east, today's weather will resemble the previous day with seasonably mild temperatures and a gentle southwest breeze.
A strong arctic cold front will drop out of the Dakotas Friday night into early Saturday, resulting in a shocking turnaround to our weather. Colder air behind the front will hold temperatures in the 20s all day. Gusty north winds will make it feel like the teens. Light precipitation behind the front will be possible, but the dynamics don't look particularly strong. Mainly light snow is possible but it could begin as rain or a wintry mix over eastern parts of the state initially, before converting over to light snow. The better prospects for accumulating snow will be over the far western part of the state. All in all, Saturday doesn't look like a great day to be outside.
Sunday will continue to be chilly even with sunny skies, but temperatures will warm each day thereafter, reaching the 50s by Wednesday and continuing through Thanksgiving Day.
