After another record snowstorm in early October, record lows had much of the state shivering on Thursday morning. Some towns even dropped below 0 which is extremely rare here in early October. Record lows are possible again headed into Friday morning with temperatures dipping into the 0s and 10s once again. Average lows should be in the 30s, with average highs around 60 this time of year. Friday will start out very chilly with areas of black ice once again, so please be careful driving early in the day. Clear skies will allow sunshine to warm temperatures above freezing allowing some snow to melt through the afternoon. Highs will warm into the 30s and low 40s. High pressure will create clear and generally calm conditions that will carry over into the weekend. Saturday will be a sunny and warmer day with highs in the 40s to around 50. Snow will slowly continue to melt. Sunday will be another pleasant day with highs near 50 but clouds will increase through the day. Partly cloudy skies will become mostly cloudy by the evening. The next storm will move through on Monday with generally light rain and snow showers. The mountain passes could see a slushy accumulation, but the roads and travel conditions will not be as bad as the last storm. That storm will be a quick hitter as it clears the area Monday night. The next several days after will be partly to mostly cloudy with mild temperatures in the 50s to around 60.
Have a great day.
