The warm spring feeling in the air will disappear over the weekend as temperatures take a plunge and - WE KNOW IT'S APRIL FOOLS' DAY BUT THIS IS NO JOKE - a snowflake or two may even fall from the sky.
A breezy but mild day is expected Friday with highs near 80 and a chance of a thunderstorm later into the afternoon and evening.
Legitimate snow chances will develop Saturday to the far north - in the Great Lake regions, across New York, Pennsylvania, and into New England. These areas could see an inch or two of snow Saturday afternoon. The snow is likely to melt fast given temperatures will stay above freezing.
No snow accumulation is expected in our area - but keep your eyes open for snowflakes as the storm brushes past us Saturday night into Sunday. Snowflakes could mix in with the rain - so don't be surprised.
Highs only reach the low 60s on Saturday and drop even lower into the low 50s on Sunday. The chilly temps stick around a while into next week.
Have a great April Fools' Day and enjoy the snowflakes - NO JOKE!
