    Storm Team 4 Forecast

    4 things to know about the weather:

    #1:  Brace For Impact
    #2:  Increasing Winds
    #3:  Falling Temperatures
    #4:  Occasional Snow Chances

    The Arctic express is on the way and will arrive here later this afternoon.  Before the cold front gets here it will be briefly mild with highs near 50° around noontime.  You'll have no trouble knowing when the front arrives because the winds will rapidly increase and the temperatures will start to fall rather quickly.  As the front goes by there could also be a quick rain shower or two but precipitation is not the main concern. Most areas will be below freezing by 5-6pm with wind chills falling into the teens.  Northwest winds will gust to around 30mph this afternoon and will remain that strong overnight and through the day tomorrow.  Be ready!  Temperatures will fall into the teens and low 20s tonight with chills near 0° by morning.  Wednesday will be sunny, windy and cold with highs near 30° and chills in the teens all day.  With the cold air in place for the rest of the week, our next concern will be a few chances for light snow as a series of "Alberta Clippers" come past.  Thursday and Friday will both be mostly cloudy and cold with afternoon highs only in the low/mid 30s and both days will have a chance for snow. Neither of these two clippers is likely to produce a lot of snow but a quick inch or two is certainly a possibility.  We will watch these two storms carefully and update the forecast frequently so stay tuned.  The cold will relax a bit over the weekend.  Both Saturday and Sunday look to stay dry with highs in the low/mid 40s both days. Next week is looking seasonably chilly with a chance for rain on Monday.
