Colder days ahead as we move toward the weekend. A lack of blocking in the upper atmosphere has been keeping our weather pattern moving along quickly. Rollercoaster temperatures continue as we go from spring-like to seasonably chilly back to spring-like conditions in a matter of days. Our current blast of cold air will hang around through the weekend and we could also see some snow as well.
Thursday will be the least cold of the next several days but it will be the windiest. A Wind Advisory is in effect until 11am Thursday as brisk northwest winds (20-25mph) with gusts 40+mph will make it feel like its in the 30s despite the sunshine.
High Temperatures on Thursday will struggle to hit 50 degrees.
A weak storm system will move through on Friday with a reinforcing shot of colder air. Along with the front, showers could break out. With colder air in place, some snow showers are possible mainly in the morning. However, at this time this system is weak and limited with moisture.

It will be quite brisk with stiff northwest winds around 20mph with higher gusts making it feel like its in the 20s during the day.
