The snow and rain will not return tonight, but we will have temperatures falling below freezing. Look for lows in the lower 20s by the morning.
A much stronger and colder blast is coming our way. Most of the area will see snow on Thursday, followed by the coldest temperatures in the last 15 years on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Temperatures cooled off for the arrival of spring today, but a gradual warm up is expected through the weekend. Rain chances also return over the weekend, but widespread showers and storms are looking unlikely. Higher rain chances may hold off until the start of next week.
Temperatures will turn chilly overnight under clear skies and decreasing wind speeds. We'll fall back into the low to mid 40s across most of the area. Some scattered light frost could be found north of I-30 where temperatures dip into the 30s. We'll see plenty of sunshine Wednesday with a nice warm up to around 70 by afternoon.
Dry and quiet conditions continue through the end of the work week. Temperatures will warm back into the mid to upper 70s as we wrap up the week.
The chance for a few showers does return for the weekend, but rain is not looking significant. Any rain that pops up Saturday looks light and isolated. The chance for a few storms increases slightly on Sunday, mainly north of I-30. Temperatures over the weekend will continue to warm with highs expected in the low 80s. Better chances of showers and storms may hold off until the first of next week.
Have a good night!
