RECORDS, COLD, SNOW - OH MY!
It was a blustery and cold Friday, just the beginning of the wintry weekend up ahead. Winds have died down and skies have cleared. Temperatures will drop down close to records by Saturday morning.
40 to 80 year old records are in jeopardy as temperatures fall into the teens - the white circles show where temperatures come within a degree of the record low. Impressive for temperatures to get to near records in many spots where there isn't snow on the ground... in April!
Saturday will then be the calm (and cold) before the storm. High pressure will be in control which will lead to plenty of sunshine, but it's going to be chilly.
Then another winter storm will move into the Upper Midwest on Sunday. Temperatures will be in the 20s and 30s across the Upper Midwest.
