Tracking showers, a few snowflakes and bitterly cold temps....Get ready for some big swings with our temperatures over the next several days. But first, as we move through our Tuesday evening, some of us will have to dodge a few showers and possibly a few snowflakes mixed in as a system to our north swings by.  This will not be a big snow event for us. In fact, we're not expecting any accumulations, but consider yourself lucky if you see a few flakes mixed in with the rain. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies. Overnight lows will drop into the lower 30s.

On Wednesday, a few isolated rain/snow showers are possible, especially for some of our northern communities. However, little to no accumulation is expected. Otherwise, we'll see a mix of clouds and sun with high temperatures in the mid 40s.

By Thursday, a big arctic blast of cold air moves in. Highs will be in the upper 30s Thursday and Friday under partly cloudy skies. We could even see a little snow on Friday as well. Highs will only reach the mid 30s Saturday, and by Sunday on Valentine's Day, many of us will not get out of the upper 20s for afternoon highs! We'll be back in the 40s next week.

Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. A Few Scattered Showers (30%). Some snowflakes could mix in. Overnight lows in the lower 30s. Winds: W 10-15 mph.

Wednesday: Clouds and Sun. Isolated Rain/Snow(20%). Highs in the mid 40s. Winds: W 10-15 mph.

Thursday: Partly Cloudy. Cold and Breezy. Highs will be in the upper 30s. Winds: W 10-20 mph.
