Not as cold for Friday after brutal Thursday temperatures

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Thursday’s weather was marked by cold temperatures and severe windchill. The weather will improve on  Friday. Temperatures will not be as bitter and the winds will not be as strong, so the windchill will not be as severe.  A rain/snow mix will develop Friday night before changing to rain early on Saturday. We’ll receive up to a half inch of rain this weekend before temperature tumble. Saturday will be a mild day with highs near 50 degrees. The severe cold will return Sunday with highs in the teens and light snow is likely. We’ll see some minor snow accumulation by Sunday morning and a stronger system will bring a better chance for heavier snow on Wednesday.
