The National Weather Service issued its forecast for the next few days and it looks like our area is in for a wild few days weather-wise.

Things will start out on Saturday with a high wind watch. You can expect strong winds all day Saturday, with gusts around 40 - 45 mph.

Moving into Sunday, those winds will increase into more dangerous territory with the potential for wind gusts to reach around 60 mph. Rain showers are also expected to move into the area as well.

There will be a general round of showers Sunday as the front moves through. This will be followed by a brief break in precipitation as a dry slot moves in, before the air mass cools enough aloft to support a lake response, and possibly bringing some wet lake effect snow showers east of the lakes late Sunday night.

As we transition into Monday, those high winds and rain showers will give way to colder temperatures and the possibility of more snow. The chances of snow will steadily increase as we get into mid-week.

A fairly cold, if not the coldest shot of air we`ve seen so far this season will pour across the region, with temps plunging down into the negative low teens Celsius by Tuesday afternoon

While I would say maybe it’s not a bad idea to have the snow brush ready, the weather is not all bad news. The National Weather Service expects warmer temperatures to come back into the area in the 2nd half of the week.
