Get ready, folks — snow is on the way.
Forecasts call for snow to fly today through the weekend, with lows temperatures in the mid- to low-20s overnight.
A 90-percent chance of snow is forecasted for Thursday with 3 to 5 inches of accumulation expected. Friday’s forecast calls for a 60-percent chance of snow with accumulation around 1 inch.
Through the weekend, the chance for precipitation decreases to around 30 percent, with less than an inch of snowfall predicted. The overnight lows, however, are expected to dip as low as 15 degrees.
Looking forward into November, a mixture of snow and rain is forecasted, with overnight low temperatures holding steady in the mid-20s.
