The Overview

The jet stream is returning North on South winds today. The radar is clear through Frida – but there will likely be snow after 7PM tomorrow. The south winds are bringing back moderate temps fore the weekend. The SE winds are indicating precipitation. The weekend will be comparatively warmer based on the past few days. But this will bring snow with it.

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -15C(-21C) and it will rise to -5C (FL-7C) in the afternoon and then drop to -12C (FL -14C) overnight. The “warming” is happening slowly.
The winds are out of the SE at less than 10kph fore the day shifting to the South later in the day. Tomorrow they will out of the south with minor variances from SE to SW through the day, all at less than 10kph. This will bring the jet stream back north, with “warmer” weather.
