5-day forecast with Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini

Winter cooling trend continuing tonight

Winter weather will continue tonight and into the upcoming week, and tonight we saw snow and wind causing area roadways to be slick due to freezing moisture.

Area temperatures will fall into the 20s overnight Saturday with wind chills in the upper teens, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs.

"Still seeing a few snow showers sneaking into the region," Vrydaghs said. "I expect this to taper off overnight."

Following an overnight clearing, clouds will move back into the area Sunday, bringing partly cloudy skies and sub-30 degree temperatures throughout the day.

Overnight Sunday is expected to be slightly colder than Saturday night, before a brief rise in temperatures Monday.

"There will be increasing clouds throughout Monday," Vrydaghs said. "We'll start in the teens ... and will reach the mid-30s during the day."

The next chance at snow or rain could be Tuesday, as a system moves into the area from the southwestern United States.

Even if the area doesn't see precipitation Tuesday, temperatures will start in the upper-20s, reaching the mid-30s by the afternoon.
