Light snow develops tonight and continues into Friday morning. Overnight lows in the teens. Accumulation of one or two inches. Snow showers come to an end Friday morning, with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon. Highs in the low 30s.

Dry to start the weekend with mostly cloudy skies Saturday morning. Snow develops Saturday afternoon, becoming steadier and much heavier Saturday night. Very heavy snow is expected early Sunday morning, with snow tapering off as we head into Sunday evening.

Temperatures are expected to remain cold this weekend, with highs in the teens. The wind picks up substantially Sunday afternoon, creating the potential of blowing and drifting snow. Snowfall totals look to be near a foot, perhaps more, for our area.
