5 Day Forecast with Chief Meteorologist Eric Elwell

TODAY: This morning it feels like winter with temperatures in the 20s and wind chills in the teens. Highs today only climb to around 30 which is 10 degrees colder than yesterday. We stay dry today with more sun.

FRIDAY: Frigid morning with most areas in the upper teens. Clear morning. Some afternoon clouds possible with temperatures in the upper 20s.

SATURDAY: Temperatures start in the low teens. A nice start to the weekend with highs in the low 30s and plenty of sunshine. Overnight some light snow showers will pull through.

SUNDAY: Some passing light snow showers early may mix with rain before ending in the afternoon. Highs climb to around 40 so the roads for Superbowl parties should be clear. Any lingering moisture though could give a few slick spots overnight.

MONDAY: Sunshine and scattered clouds. Highs around 40. Clouds increase through the day. More moisture will move in overnight and bring rain.
