Less than an inch of snow is likely Saturday. By that definition, the last time Colorado Springs saw a white Christmas was in 1987. More snow possible at night.
For folks in Central Alabama, generally along and south of Interstate 20 and north of the USA 80 and Interstate 85 corridor, there could be some weather excitement as we end the work week.
The former treasurer of the Pueblo County Republican Party who was wanted on embezzlement charges appears to have fled the country.
Temperatures will stay cold through the weekend. Gusty northwest winds make highs mainly in the upper 30s feel even worse.
Saturday has a very slight chance to start off with some light snow but is more likely a dry day for most of us. We'll see more sunshine and cold temperatures on Sunday. Overnight, under mostly clear skies, it is quiet and cold in the upper 20s to near 30 degrees by morning. Another push of cold air may bring our first potential subzero temps to northern IN next Friday morning. Light snow showers are possible and temperatures fall back to the middle and upper 30s.
Friday highs in the lower 30s and upper 20s with late snow showers that linger through the Saturday. The winds become quite gusty, so wind chill readings are expected in the teens with actual air temperatures only climbing to the lower 30s. However, it still bears watching just in case, especially towards the I-95 corridor. Look for more 20s Friday night. Accumulation looking minor at this point. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies, brisk breezes, and colder temperatures to be the rule through the rest of the weekend. In addition, there is a wind chill factor. The third and final chance for some snowflakes arrives later next Tuesday into Wednesday as low-pressure tracks from the Great Lakes into the Northeast.
The cold pattern will be more about persistence than intensity.
